The Knights went 4-1 in the tournament, which gave them second place in pool play. Head coach Beth Hill said the tournament came at a nice time for WCA after grinding out two wins in three long matches during the week. 

“It was a nice time to get these extra games in right before we finish our regular season play,” she said. “I am really happy with how today went.”

The Knights started play in the tournament with a three-set win over Staples-Motley. They followed that up with a two-set loss to Annandale, their only defeat in the tournament.

“Annandale is a strong team,” Hill said. “We played well and were right with them throughout the game. I was satisfied with this performance.”

WCA bounced back with two-set wins over Upsala and Little Falls to finish pool play.

From there, the Knights beat host LPGE in three-sets to clinch third place.
