Blaine High School senior Lydia Dimke can add another post-season accolade to her growing list of accomplishments.
Blaine volleyball came back from down 0-2 to win the Class AAA state third place trophy 3-2 against Shakopee at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Nov. 10.
Winning a game at state was a reasonable goal for Blaine this year. The No. 2 seeded Bengals came into state riding a 20-match winning streak and pushed it to 21 games after a 3-0 win in the state quarterfinals over Bemidji.
The Blaine Bengals are returning to the state volleyball tournament and they are determined to take care of some unfinished business at the St. Paul Excel Energy Center this week.
