Volleyball falls to Kenmare

By Jody Michael
The Divide County volleyball team (5-7, 1-5 District 16) fell to Kenmare in district play Thursday, 25-14, 25-14 and 25-19.
MaKenzie Knudson and Lauryn Heide shared the lead in kills for the Maroons on the night, each tallying three. McKenzie Hallgren totaled a team-high 18 digs.
“We just need to learn from this game, continue to put in the work and move forward,” Divide County head coach Brittany Harward said.
On Sept. 13, Sabe’s 10 kills led Divide County on its way to a convincing three-set, 25-18, 25-10, 25-22, victory over Tioga.
The 25-10 second set was Divide County’s most dominant of the season to that point.
Power-Akers added three kills and 11 assists, while Heide added three kills and three blocks. As a team, the Maroons served up 13 aces.
Juli Christofferson led Tioga with six kills, and Nicole Postovit posted 12 assists.
Tuesday’s home match vs. Burke County was after press time. The Maroons are now off until a rematch with Burke County on Sept. 29 in Lignite.
