Watford City – The North Dakota Region 8 Volleyball Tournament kicks off on Monday at the Rough Rider Center in Watford City.
Here is a full preview of the action:
Kenmare Honkers (D16-#1) (29-9)
Alexander Comets (D15-#4) (8-12)
The Kenmare Honkers are coming off an impressive showing in the District 16 Tournament. The hard hitting combo of McKayla Neubauer and Sierra Overton will present a difficult challenge for the Comets. Alexander upset #2 New Town in the District 15 Tournament to qualify for the Region 8 Tournament.
Ray Jays (D16-#3) (17-16)
Parshall Braves (D15-#2) (8-14)
The Ray Jays won their October 25th meeting with the Parshall Braves 3-0. District 16 Senior Athlete of the Year Marissa Veach is coming off an excellent District 16 Tournament, Veach does it all for the Jays and will likely be a handful for the Braves once again.
Watford City Wolves (D15-#1) (28-8)
Stanley Blue Jays (D16-#4) (9-26-1)
The Wolves won their only regular season meeting with the Stanley Blue Jays on September 27th. The Wolves bring in a 12 game winning streak to the Region 8 Tournament. The Blue Jays showed in their semifinal match with Kenmare that they can hang with the upper-echelon teams for stretches. The young Blue Jays will need to be on the top of their game to advance against the District 15 champions.
Powers Lake Ranchers (D16-#2) (22-9)
Trinity Christian Crusaders (D15-#3) (10-16)
Powers Lake looked very impressive for a majority of the District 16 Tournament. The Ranchers have three hitters that can really bring the heat (Hove, Titus, and Honrud). The Crusaders will have their hands full with the Ranchers in the first round.
