  • The Montevideo volleyball team concluded the regular season on a winning note, outlasting Benson in five games on the Braves' home court Monday.
    All five sets were closely contested, with Montevideo winning the first two sets only to see the Braves come back to square the match.
    Benson led 13-11 in the deciding fifth set before Montevideo scored the final four points, the last on a kill by Ashley Hoehne.
    Hoehne had 17 kills and Nettie Duvall 11 to offset the 27 kills made by the  Braves' Emma Peterson. Tori Kuhlmann made 50 set assists for the T-Hawks.
    "It was the best we have played as a team this year. Everyone stepped up to the challenge," said Montevideo coach Aimee Thalberg.
    Montevideo will play Morris/Chokio-Alberta Friday at Morris in the opening round of the Section 3AA tournament. The Tigers won the regular season meeting between the two teams in four sets.
