Wadena-Deer Creek volleyball players left at noon Wednesday for the Xcel Energy Center with a proper send-off, thanks to high school and elementary students, staff, players' families and community members, who cheered on the Wolverines with a pep fest and a send-off from the high school gymnasium.

The volleyball players climbed into a decorated WDC school bus and were escorted by Wadena Police, Wadena County Sheriff's Office, and Wadena and Deer Creek fire departments through town. Before they left Wadena, they made a quick stop at WDC Elementary where they were greeted by a crowd of excited young Wolverines.
