Spuds snag state bid from Alex

Email News Alerts

They always say the third time is the charm.

It was that and then some for Moorhead’s volleyball team Friday night, when it claimed a Minnesota Class 3A, Section 8 championship with a 23-25, 25-22, 25-23, 25-15 win over Alexandria – a team the Spuds had lost to twice during the regular season.


As a result, the Spuds will advance to the state tournament at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. It’s the Spuds 20th state tournament in school history – their first since 2010.
