District 16 Tournament: Blue Jays glide by Titans

Tioga – The Stanley Blue Jays took home a convincing 3-0 victory over the Burke County Titans in the final round of the District 16 Volleyball Tournament, with the victory the Blue Jays earn a spot in Region 8 Tournament that will be held next week in Watford City.

Stanley cruised in the first two sets and for a majority of the third set they were in control.

“Burke put up a good fight, it took all of us to come together to win the game,” said Stanley Blue Jay junior Abby Iverson.

The Blue Jays will look to clean up a few of the unforced errors before the regional tournament starts. “Our biggest goal going into regionals is getting the serves in play, and we want the first ball to be up and playable,” said Iverson.

Sets: 1st – 25-15, 2nd 25-14, 3rd 25-18

The Blue Jays will play at 6pm on Monday against the #1 seed from District 15.

We will have more information on the Region 8 tournament once the District 15 tournament concludes on Friday.
