The hardest test in sports, whether at the high school, collegiate, or professional level, is to defend what is yours. Fresh off a 2017 Region 7 title, the Dickinson Trinity volleyball team entered its 2018 campaign knowing that every time the Titans step on the floor, they'll receive their opponent's strongest haymaker. Or in this case, their opponent's strongest spike.
The Dickinson High girls swim and dive team will travel to West Fargo on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 8, for the 2018 State Swimming and Diving meet taking place that weekend. The team will do so with its largest class of individual state-qualifiers in program history. One year after 10 swimmers were sent to state, the Midgets will have 15 girls participating on the grand stage this year.
The Dickinson Trinity volleyball team has earned a pair of sweeps through its first two matches of the Region 7 Tournament. Each contest featured dominating performances in the first two sets before squeaking by in the third. However, juxtaposed to a lackadaisical performance against No. 8 seed New England where the top-seeded Titans appeared slow to the punch, Dickinson Trinity exhibited more ferocity on the court in a 25-11, 25-10, 25-19 regional semifinal victory over No. 5 seed Heart River on Tuesday, Nov. 6, from the Knights of Columbus Activities Center.
When Hettinger-Scranton scored the first point in the third set of its match again Glen Ullin-Hebron, Night Hawks junior outside hitter Alyssa Andress let out an emphatic scream and fist pump. It was not any ordinary first point to a set. Tying the Region 7 Tournament quarterfinal at 1-1, the Bearcats prevailed in the previous frame 25-21 after the Night Hawks took the first frame 25-11. Hettinger-Scranton responded with renewed intensity.
Entering the Region 7 Tournament as the top seed, the Dickinson Trinity volleyball team earned a sweep in its quarterfinal match against New England, which included a 20-point victory in the second set. However, the defending region champions have lots of work to do if they want to make a return trip to the big dance. After pulling away late in the first frame, the Titans survived a late Tigers surge in the third, holding on for a 25-16, 25-5, 26-24 victory on Monday, Nov. 5, from the Knights of Columbus Activities Center.
