The Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines punched their own ticket to the Class AA state volleyball tournament last Saturday by whipping Thief River Falls in the Section 8AA championship match.


The Wolverines won 25-15, 25-18 and 25-20 to qualify for their fourth straight trip to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. It was the final rung on the ladder for Sue Volkmann's state-ranked club.

"We wanted to win it again," WDC libero Hope Theisen said. "We wanted to go back to state."
