Bombers' Reese Miletich powers a spike past the block thrown up by the Northland Eagles.

The Barnum Bombers started their section 7A volleyball tournament run hosting the Eagles of Northland on Monday, October 21.

The Eagles served first but the Bombers powered past the Eagles' defense to jump out to an early lead on a 5-0 run before turning the serve back over to the Eagles. The power of the Bombers plagued the Eagles as they would have many return errors. The Bombers would have only 2 service errors and would also have 12 kills on 24 swings and 16 digs and 5 ace serves in the first set. The Bombers would run strong in the first set to come away with the 25-8 victory over the Eagle.

The second set had the Bombers slow down a bit with only 8 kills on 24 swings, with 20 digs and 5 ace serves. The Eagles would put together some nice rallies against the Bombers but in the end the Bombers would be able to outlast the Eagles' rally to win the point. The Bombers took the second set 25-13.

The third set saw the Bombers again come out swinging. Unfortunately, several of the swings would go long giving the Eagles the points. The Bombers however would play well as they began to change things up and started to drop the ball just over the blocks or right on the line giving the Eagles a lot of ground to cover to be able to return the ball. In the end the Bombers again walked away with the third set 25-12.

Olivia Bogenholm led the Bombers with 7 kills, 9 digs, and 7 ace serves; Reese Miletich had 7 kills, 10 digs, and 1 ace; Kendal Miletich had 6 kills, 9 digs, and 4 aces; Lacie O'Leary had 5 kills and 9 digs; Alina Lekander had 4 kills, 10 digs, and 2 aces. Brooke Doran had 29 assists, 3 digs, and 4 aces; Dana Weets had 5 digs; and Siara Unklehauser came off the bench to add 1 dig.
