The Big Lake Hornets varsity volleyball team lost their last game of the regular season to North Branch at home Tuesday.
The Hornets won the first game, 32-30, but lost the next three, 25-23, 30-28 and 25-8.
“North Branch is a strong team and it was a very competitive match,” said Coach Alisha Brust. “It was probably one of the most exciting matches of the season. Other than our lack of intensity in game four I can't complain about how hard the girls played all night.”
Amber Pribnow had one dig and 11 assists. Taylor Krebs had one ace serve. Rylee Sayler had three ace serves, 10 digs and 11 kills.
Sarah Arbogast had three ace serves and four kills. Alex Murnane had oneace serve, three digs, one kill and nine assists.  Payton Thompson had three digs. Nicole Braegelmann had seven digs. Jaiden Lund had two digs and 10 kills. Hannah Geroux had five kills. Caitlin Deuel had two kills.
Tuesday was senior night and the team recognized their only senior, Captain Sarah Peterson. Peterson had two ace serves and nine kills.
The Hornets finish the season with a record of 12 wins and 16 losses. They go on to section play Wednesday, at Big Lake playing Brainerd at 7 p.m.
“We are very excited about our chances in section play,” Coach Brust said. “Our section is definitely weaker than our conference so the competition we face in conference play and these close losses will only make us stronger as play-off's come next week. “We know the few things we need to polish up and are looking forward to coming in as a dark horse and beating a few teams who may have overlooked us,” she said.
