QCTV recaps the state volleyball tournament where Anoka (and Blaine) took part. The Tornadoes dropped both state matches while Blaine rallied to match the 2006 result by hoisting the Class AAA third place title. Top five soccer moments from the fall also.
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.
‘Unfinished Business’ was more than a motto for the No. 2 seeded Blaine volleyball team as it summed up its first round performance in a 3-0 win over Bemidji (23-8) in the Class AAA quarterfinals Thursday at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
Top-ranked Lakeville North showed why it deserves the recognition as one of the state’s top programs after handing unranked and unseeded Anoka a 3-0 loss in the Class AAA state volleyball quarterfinals Thursday morning at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
