A stinging setback

The Panther volleyball team rarely experienced the bitter taste of defeat this year, losing just three matches heading into Saturday night’s Section 3A championship tilt against Minneota. However, the Vikings proved to be more than just a worthy opponent and handed TMB its fourth loss of the season, denying TMB a fourth-straight trip to the state tournament. Like their teammates and coaches, TMB players, from left, Cassidy Smith, Evy Dolan, Samantha Edwards and Sid Karbo wore their emotions on their sleeves after the match.
