Braves sweep LQP in volleyball opener
The Benson volleyball team opened up the 2014 season with a three-game sweep over Lac qui Parle, Monday night in Benson.
The Braves, coached by Shannon Schmidt, Sarah Lundebrek, and Miranda Bonk, are coming off a 10-16 season from a year ago that included a 6-7 mark within the WCC South to give Benson a second-place finish in the conference behind BOLD, which finished 11-2 in league competition.
The Braves struggled early in the first game, falling behind 10-6 and 16-13, but Benson regrouped to take command of the match, winning in three games, 25-21, 25-18, 25-22.
This week, Benson is set to host BOLD, Thursday (tomorrow) before taking a week off to prepare for a home match with Atwater-CGC, Thursday, Sept. 4.
A match with Montevideo, that was previously scheduled for the first day of school, Tuesday, Sept. 2, has been moved back to Tuesday, Oct. 7.
