SIOUX FALLS — For the second straight year, the Wagner wrestling team is in second place after the first round of the Class B state wrestling tournament, which was Friday at the Sioux Falls Arena.

WATERTOWN — Wagner moved one step closer to its second consecutive Class A state volleyball title with a 3-0 sweep of Platte-Geddes in a semifinal game Friday at Watertown Civic Arena.

The Red Raiders then cruised through the next two sets, taking 25-12 and 25-14 wins to move into tonight’s championship game against Milbank, which beat Mobridge-Pollock 3-0 Friday, at 8 p.m.
WATERTOWN — Mount Vernon refused to go down without a fight, but in the end, the Fillies had no answer for Arlington’s Lanny Gross or Allison Boeck — especially with their best defensive player out with an injury.
Gross tallied 21 kills and Boeck added 17 more as Arlington beat Mount Vernon 3-1 Friday in a semifinal game of the Class B state volleyball tournament at Watertown. Mount Vernon was once again playing without Chandra Koch, one of the Fillies most dominant defensive players at the net.
