Braves volleyball team ends season at west region

The Braves led the match 2 to 1 with one win go in order to keep their season alive, but Minot forged a slow yet steady comeback, taking three consecutive games to knock Mandan out of a state appearance this year.

In the loser-out match of the west region tournament, Minot beat Mandan 3-2 to remain in the tournament, while Mandan ended its season in the loss. Mandan defeated Minot in the first round 25-20 before losing the next round 25-22. The Braves then took the third round in a 25-15 win, before Minot began its rally.

The Braves’ Alexis Goldade, a 6-1 senior, led in kills for the team with nine, and also added four blocks on the defensive end. JaeLyn Russell also added another seven kills in the five-set match.

The Braves fell in its first game of the tournament to Dickinson, 3 to 0. They were led once again by Goldade with eight kills, while Russell contributed another six.
