DEVILS LAKE - Tuesday was anything but an empty plate in terms of volleyball matches as seven total matches took place. Here is how each team fared.

A Volleyball, East: 

Devils Lake vs. West Fargo (9/14) 

Final score: 3-0 West Fargo 

West Fargo immediately came out with a bang as their velocity and pace were unable to be matched by the Firebirds. “They had to have confidence in themselves,” Devils Lake head coach Megan Sylling said after the match. “They needed to try and push harder with the ball, and they needed to get some passes so that we could set up on the court.” The Firebirds will next go against Valley City on the road on Sep. 16. 

B Volleyball, Region 4: 

Benson County @ Four Winds/Minnewaukan (9/14) 

Final score: 3-0 Benson County

Senior middle hitter Desidy Schwanke once again had a pristine performance as she compiled 12 kills, five aces, five digs and five blocks in the three-set sweep.
