Page 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 20 4 Aggies volle00l season ends in quarterfinals, SWartz,Welch named toAII-Region 2Team By Chris Larson for The Press LARIMORE, N.D. -- The Park River-Fordville-Lankin volleyball sea- son ended last Monday night in the quar- terfinal round of the NDHSAA Super Region 2 Tournament at the Larimore High School gymnasium. The Aggies took on a very tough Fin- ley-Sharon-Hope-Page Spartans vol- leyball team, whom they had faced earlier this season and defeated in five sets, 3-2. This time around, the tables were turned as FSHP escaped with the victory, this time in an elimination round during the post-season. FSHP was ready for the tournament, and it was evident by the play in the first set. The Aggies were slow to start, losing the first set 25-10. But it was the second set that was the highlight of the night. Back and forth ac- tion by both teams, captivating the au- dience who attended Monday's opening round on a night where eight of the re- gion's best teams squared offin the quar- terfinals, led to an exciting finish. After a combined 72 points in a sin- gle set, the Spartans escaped with a set two victory, 37-35, which allowed the momentum to swing in their direction, and give them the edge on the floor, on the scoreboard and in every aspect of the game heading into the third set. The Aggies had a great opportunity to bring the game back into their court, but fell short in the third set, 25-18 in a three-set sweep at the hands of FSHP. Hannah Swartz led the Aggies with 11 kills and added seven assists. Taylor Dalbey, who has come on as one of the stronger players as of late, added nine kills. Katie Bohn added five kills for the Aggies, whose season ended with the loss. Claire Welch led all Aggies with 11 assists. The Aggies finished the season with a record of 22 wins and 13 losses. They will lose the service of three seniors who have given their all to the sport--Bohn, Welch and Swartz. Left: Claire Welch retums a shot over her shoulder at the net.

He said consulted with Damon Johnson on horticulture ideas and was able to finish the garden space this sum- mer. When the project was com- pleted, Isak donated the remainder of his funds to the legion. Gary said that they then, in turn, decided to return that money to the boy scouts. "We felt Isak earned it." Isak, son of Martia and Jeff Johnson, joined Cub Scouts in first grade and joined Boy Scouts in sixth grade. "I joined in first grade because I thought it was fun, and I have stuck it out because I still think it's fun," Isak said. ,,. The project was one of the final requirements for earning the Ea- gle Scout rank in Boy Scouts. Isak, along with Rylan Setness and Seth Helgeson, will be relieving .the title of Eagle Scout this year. To earn the Eagle Scout rank, they have to t a set of stan- dards and pass a Board of Review. So far, none of them have officially received the title of Eagle Scout, but they are hoping to get it by the end of the month. r Photo: Larry Biri Above: Isak Johnson (Right to Left) presents Gary Griecar, Commander Dennis Helt, Vem Houser, and Greg Johnson of the Legion House Board with a plaque to complete his Eagle Scout service project of building a me- modal garden for the Legion Coliseum.
