HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL: Warriors defeat Willmar in four

Courtney Ryan racked up 11 kills, 27 digs, and three aces as Brainerd defeated Sauk Rapids in four sets in Tuesday’s Central Lakes Conference match at Brainerd High School.

Tedi Ramberg added eight kills, five digs, and 4.5 blocks in the win.

“Coming off our tournament last weekend, we really grew as a team. We played better team volleyball and had better chemistry,” Warriors coach Jared Diem said. “Courtney Ryan had one of her best games ever, both offensively and defensively, and our two setters (Hannah Kangas and Jenna Degen) set the ball exceptionally well tonight and played good defense.”
