The Garden County Eagles entered Saturday’s Morrill Volleyball Invitational having yet to suffer a loss all season, but it was the Lingle-Fort Laramie Doggers who took home the championship after defeating the Eagles 25-23, 24-26, 25-20.
Both the Crawford Rams and Sioux County Warriors took part in the invite. The Rams defeated Sioux County 25-21, 25-22, to meet Lingle-Fort Laramie in the quarterfinal, but fell in three sets 25-16, 11-25, 20-25.
The loss meant a match against the Minatare Indians for third place. The Rams kept things close, losing the first set 21-25, but couldn’t keep up in the second set and fell to fourth place after the set ended 25-17 in favor of Minatare.
Because there were an odd amount of teams at the invite, the loser’s bracket was played as a triangular between Morrill, Guernsey-Sunrise and Sioux County.
