The Grantsburg Pirates volleyball team played Regis in a nail biting Sectional match. The first set was a close match with Grantsburg starting as they usually do, with a slower start. Regis must have been watching some tape because once they got a leg up on Grantsburg, they punched it through, all the way to 25 points. Grantsburg did their best to catch up, but it just wasn’t quite fast enough. That set ended with Regis having the advantage 25-23
In the second set, the two squads traded toles with Grantsburg relentlessly bombing the Regis side of the net. Regis didn’t catch up to Grantsburg’s commanding lead, and the Pirates won 25-17.
The third set was a real nail biter. Grantsburg got off to a pretty quick start, having a 3 point lead 10-7. But Regis was not to go quietly and fought for every point, following them one point behind at all times. Grantsburg finished off the set a winner, in edge-of-your-seat fashion 25-23.
The fourth set went to the Regis Ramblers 25-14, and the match would head to a fifth and deciding set.
The fifth and final set matched the rest of the game, which was a nail biter. That fifth set was exciting all the way to the end. Grantsburg came out on top though, winning 15-13 and taking the match three sets to two. Grantsburg heads back to State.
