New Rockford-Sheyenne won three out of their five matches at the Lakota Varsity Tournament on Saturday, September 7, and came home with the second place trophy.

The Rockets took a two-set win in pool play over the Rolla Bulldogs (25-24, 25-18). In the other two abbreviated matches to 25 points, NR-S got splits with the Midkota Mustangs and Devils Lake Firebirds junior varsity, but were defeated by the Mustangs on points, 47-38, and took a 49-35 aggregate to beat the Firebirds.

With six pool points, Coach Sara Myhre's club took the top spot in Pool A, and were matched up with Pool B runner-up Barnes County North in tournament play's semifinal round. The Rockets won two straight over the Lady Bison, 25-17 and 25-20, and advanced to the championship.

A familiar opponent awaited for the tourney plaque, but this time, the results were different. Rolla took a straight set win over the Rockets in twin 25-17 fashion.

Individual statistics from the tournament were not available.

NR-S (3-3 overall) resumes their rivalry with the team 16 miles to the south, the Carrington Cardinals, this Thursday evening at CHS. The full slate starts at 3:30 p.m. with the seventh grade match, followed by the eighth, C-squad, junior varsity and varsity matches.
