The 8th grade Cannon Falls volleyball team was a small but mighty group of athletes, coach Kathy Illa said.
"Throughout most of the season, the 6-member team played the HVL conference schedule, achieving many goals and challenges that a season can present. This group of young athletes won its pool at the K-W tournament and ended up earning 2nd place at that tournament. These VB girls were able to play in new positions, making them versatile players," Illa said.
The team concluded the season at its home tournament; in pool play, the Bombers missed making the championship match by 1 point. In the 3rd place match, the girls had a convincing win over Z-M.
The members of this team were Brooke Kimmes, Amy Jo McNurlin, Belle O'Reilly, Anna Schroeder, Maddy Siebenaler, and Erlyn Strelow.
