COLFAX—The Colfax Vikings interrupted the Webster Tigers' volleyball season with a 3-1 win over the Tigers at a Division 3 Regional final on Saturday.

The game scores were 22-25, 25-19, 25-12 and 25-17.

“Colfax played a tough game,” explained Tiger coach Stefanie Janssen. “They were strong at the net in both attacking and blocking. We struggled to get the ball around their big blocks, and did them a favor with our inconsistency behind the serving line.

“As a team, we are very proud of how much we have accomplished this season. We will miss Taylor (Howe) and Skyler (Winkler) greatly, but they've set a great example for the younger players of what you can accomplish with hard work and dedication. We were hoping for the rematch vs Grantsburg too! Maybe next year.”

Summer Winkler led the Tigers in kills with 15 and Howe added 15. Kaitlyn Lee assisted 20 times. Emma Zmuda and Hannah Janssen had two aces apiece.
