>>>IT’S STATE TOURNAMENT TIME FOR HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL, AND THREE LOCAL TEAMS HAD ALREADY SNAPPED LONG TOURNAMENT DROUGHTS AND WERE LOOKING TO MAKE SOME NOISE AT THE EXCEL ENERGY CENTER. WE START WITH THE FOSSTON GREYHOUNDS, WHO WERE LOOKING TO DO WHAT THEY DID LAST TIME THEY WERE AT STATE, WIN IT ALL. GREYHOUNDS TAKING ON MOUNDS PARK WHO HAD NEVER BEEN TO STATE BEFORE. FIRST SET JAMIE CARLIN WITH THE FINESSE TOUCH, BUT MOUNDS PARK WOULD TAKE THE SET 25-22. IN THE SECOND, GREYHOUNDS COME ROARING BACK. EMMA DRELLACK JUST INSIDE THE LINE. FOSSTON WINS THE SECOND 25-14. IN THE THIRD, PANTHERS WITH THE KILL. THEY WIN THE THIRD 25-22 IN THE FOURTH, TWO GREYHOUNDS DIVE TO SAVE THIS POINT AND THEN DRELLACK WITH THE LIGHT TAP. FOSSTON WINS SET FOUR 25-17, FORCING A FIFTH SET. FOSSTON STARTS HOT. BROOKLYN OSTENAA WITH A HARD SPIKE AT THE HEART OF THE D. THAT MAKES IT 12-5. AND THEN CARLIN PROVIDES THE DAGGER WITH THIS MATCH-WINNING BLOCK. FOSSTON WINS A THRILLER 3-2, CHAZ MOOTZ HAS MORE FROM ST. PAUL ON THE GREYHOUNDS COMEBACK WIN.>>AFTER NOT REACHING THE STATE TOURNAMENT SINCE 04, ONE CHALLENGE THAT FOSSTON FACED WAS GETTING USED TO THE SET-UP AT EXCEL CENTER. ONCE THE NERVES CALMED DOWN, THEY FOUND A GROOVE AND ALSO FOUND SUCCESS.>>WHEN WE FIRST GOT OUT THERE, WE WERE LIKE OH MY GOODNESS, IT IS SO BIG AND BRIGHT OUT THERE. WE GOT REALLY NERVOUS AT FIRST. I THINK IN THE THIRD SET WE PULLED IT TOGETHER.>>WE HAD SOME NERVES THAT WERE A FACTOR IN SET ONE. WE COULD TELL THAT RIGHT AWAY WHEN THE GIRLS GOT ON THE COURT.
