The Osakis volleyball team knows it needs to challenge itself against bigger opponents through the regular season as it gets ready to jump to Class AA in the tournament this year.

The Silverstreaks did that over the weekend, splitting four matches at the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted tournament. Osakis got off to a good start with straight-set wins over Buffalo Lake-Hector and Howard Lake-Waverly in the first two matches. That set the Silverstreaks up against Monticello, where they lost 25-19 and 25-14 before falling to Norwood Young America 25-17 and 25-18 to end the weekend with a fourth-place finish.

"Overall, I feel like we had a great tournament and am very glad we got to play teams of that caliber," head coach Kirsten Wessel said. "Brooke Sorenson and Brittney Sadlemyer played very well in the middle positions today. Both are good vocal leaders on the court. Annalise Savageau and Mackenzie Staloch ran our offense very well, while accumulating several kills as well."

Sadlemyer led Osakis with 12 kills in four sets over the course of her team's two wins. Sorenson added 11 in those two wins. The Silverstreaks are 4-4 in early-season tournaments so far against some quality competition, and Wessel is happy with the way all the girls played together on Saturday.
