With a nearly finished gym as their backdrop, the Maple Grove Senior High Crimson girls volleyball team hosted the Osseo Senior High Orioles Tuesday, Sept. 1. With
the gym awaiting its finishing touches, the Orioles proved in the early season
they have no problem finishing as they defeated the Crimson 3-2.
Osseo rallied to take the first game 25-23 then watched as the Crimson
dominated the second 25-18. The teams played a tight third game that saw Maple
Grove sneak out a 25-23 victory. The Crimson took advantage with strong play in
the middle giving them a 2-1 lead. With the pressure firmly on the Orioles, Osseo
rallied past the Crimson 25-18 to even the match, then never looked back in the
fifth game with a 15-10 win.
Osseo junior Tina Boe was the story for the Orioles as she finished with 20 kills and six blocks while senior Lauren Bright tallied 16 kills for Maple Grove.
