A slew of injury and COVID-19 issues did not quell the Wildcats from doing what was needed against a Nelson County team that could easily jump the gun and surprise opponents with an upset if they were not too careful. Now, it is about preparing for the 2021 NDHSAA Class B Region 4 Volleyball Tournament at Devils Lake High School on Nov. 8. “We had a good season,” Benson County head coach Bridget Geller said. “We had a lot of ups and downs for a while there with COVID-19 and health issues going around our schools. I am proud of these girls. They have worked hard, day in and day out. We still have a lot of work to do going into regions, but I am excited for where we are going to be seeded. I am excited, they are excited, and I think we can go far in this regional tournament.”
