The Divide County volleyball team faces Stanley in opening-round play at the District 16 tournament Monday at 4:30 p.m. in Tioga.
Divide County closed out its regular-season schedule Tuesday after press time at Trenton.
Prior to that match, the Maroons held a 15-14 overall record and a 4-8 mark in district play. The 15 victories are equal to last season’s total.
An Oct. 13 loss to Stanley secured the No. 5 seed for DC in the tournament.
The match was an opportunity for the Maroons to enter the tournament on a winning streak, as they rebounded from the Stanley loss with a 3-1 (25-20, 25-22, 20-25, 25-20) victory Oct. 18 over Trinity Christian in Williston.
Lauryn Heide led a balanced DC offense with seven kills, followed by Kate Sabe with six.
McKenzie Hallgren paced the DC back row, collecting a team-high 42 digs.
