EDC volleyball: Sheyenne reaches state tournament for the first time

DEVILS LAKE — The wait is over for the West Fargo Sheyenne volleyball team

Olivia Dobrinz had 15 kills, McKenzie Newton had 27 assists and 15 digs and the Mustangs reached their first state tournament with a 25-21, 18-25, 25-20, 25-23 win over Devils Lake in a state qualifying match at the Eastern Dakota Conference Tournament Saturday.

Newton added 15 digs and 10 kills in the winning effort, while Brooke Prochaska added 26 assists of her own for the Mustangs, who bounced back following a 3-1 loss to West Fargo in the opening round of the tournament.

The win also ended the program's four-game losing streak in state qualifying matches.
