Mariah Ahrndt (1) goes up for a block attempt against ACGC as Abbie Mitteness (3), Lizzie Staton (13), and Anna Gosson (10) look on.  The Braves ended the season with a three-game loss to ACGC, Thursday in Benson.

The Braves came into the match as the fourth seed in its “pod” of Section 5A, while the Falcons were seeded fifth.  The two teams split their regular-season matches.

The loss ended the Braves’ season with a 6-19 overall record, which included a 3-11 mark in the WCC to tie with ACGC for sixth place.  ACGC moved on to the next round where it fell in three games to top-seeded BBE.

The four top seeds in the Section 5A Tourney were BBE, Rush City, Pine River-Backus, and Royalton.

Morris Area-CA won this year’s WCC title with a 13-1 record, followed by Melrose Area (12-2), Sauk Centre (11-3), and Montevideo (8-6)....
