Volleyball: Silverstreaks go 1-3 at Sartell Tourney

The Osakis volleyball team opened up Thursday’s Sartell-St. Stephen Tournament on the right foot, but it didn’t translate into success for the remainder of the day.

The Silverstreaks took care of business with a 2-0 (25-16, 25-15) win over Hibbing to kick off the tourney, but three straight losses ended Osakis’ bid for a longer run of victories.

Osakis lost 2-1 (25-23, 21-25, 15-9) to Princeton in the second round of pool play, and St. Cloud Cathedral then handled them 2-0 (25-10, 25-9). The day closed with a matchup against Waseca in a battle of third-place teams, where the Silverstreaks fell victim to a 2-0 (25-10, 26-24) loss.

Osakis closes the regular season with a 14-12 record. The Silverstreaks will return to the court for the Section 5A Tournament, which begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25. Seedings, matchups and locations will be determined Monday, Oct. 22.
