The #8-seeded Kimball Cubs lost to #1-seed Watertown-Mayer, 0-3, in the quarterfinal round of the Section 5AA tournament Tuesday, Nov. 2. Set scores were 13-25, 20-25, 15-25.
“We battled at times, but we just couldn’t manage to maintain our level of play against them. We are still out our two starters, a left and our M1, so we were changing the line-up again during playoffs. Unfortunately, consistency has been our struggle this year, with the illnesses and injuries we sustained. All in all, the girls battled this season, finishing 14-14. The staff and I are proud of the way they handled adversity,” Coach Tabitha Mortenson said.
