It wasn’t the way they would have liked it to end, but the 2008 volleyball season will surely be one to remember for the Litchville-Marion-Montpelier Rebels.
After wrapping up a perfect regular season of head-to-head play and winning the Region 3 crown, the Rebels took some of the best teams in the state to the wire to capture a fourth-place finish in the state Class B girls’ volleyball tournament Saturday.
A remarkable season almost turned into an unimaginable season for the Litchville-Marion-Montpelier Rebels Friday night.
The Rebels stood on the brink of capping their amazing ride on the volleyball court with a trip to the state Class B championship match. But the Langdon Cardinals, who’ve played in the last 11 state volleyball tournaments, were ready and waiting for the Rebels in the state semifinal match.
For veteran volleyball coach Lynn Krueger and the communities supporting the Litchville-Marion-Montpelier Rebels, this week has been a long time coming.
Last Thursday in LaMoure, the Rebels defeated Kidder County-Steele 3-0 to hoist the Region 3 championship trophy and clinch the team’s first-ever state volleyball tournament appearance.
