WADENA — The Wolverine girls held tight with the undefeated Breckenridge volleyball team on Tuesday, Oct. 5.

Despite comebacks and even wild runs ahead of the Cowgirls, the Wolverines just could not muster a win and fell 3-0 to Breckenridge. But considering the strength of this Breckenridge team, made up exclusively of seniors and juniors, the young Wolverines showed they've got what it takes to play with the big guns.

While the Cowgirls brought an impressive ability to set up their hits, the Wolverines libero Ashley Lepinski cleaned up with 28 digs.

Meanwhile seventh grader Payton Gravelle fired six kills and, new to the lineup, sophomore Isabelle Larson, added four kills. Larson made significant contributions to the team and newcomer Jenna Dykhoff also brought some much needed breaks for the usual wrecking crew.

Addison Gravelle kept up her role in assisting the team with 17 setting assists.
