Sauk Rapids-Rice recorded a 3-1 Central Lakes Conference volleyball victory over Fergus Falls on Thursday night at the Kennedy Secondary School Gold Gymnasium, winning 25-23, 27-25, 20-25, 25-13.
"We have had so many games where we have been in it point-for-point, but can't find that mental edge to get the win," said Head Coach Renee Erickson of the Otters. "We need to learn how to play with more consistency and we need to replace the fear of losing with the courage to win."
Leaders for the Otters were Lily Pearson (18 kills, 10/10 serving, 3 blocks, 6 digs), Kaia Strom (25/26 serving, 2 aces, 34 set assists, 1 block, 7 digs), Jade Zierden(5/5 serving, 1 ace, 5 kills, 9 digs), Emma Norgard (7/7 serving, 4 digs), Sabrina Fronning (14/16 serving, 2 aces, 5 kills, 11 digs), Hallie Sheridan (8/8 serving, 9 digs) and Hannah Prody (5 kills, 2 blocks).
The Otters will participate in the Alexandria Tournament on Saturday. Rocori, Ada-Borup and Morris Area are in their pool.
