The #8-seeded New York Mills Eagles volleyball team defeated the #9 Ulen-Hitterdal Spartans 3-2 in the opening round of 6A section playoffs Thursday night.


"The first two games were really close and the girls capitalized on some big plays to end those," Head Coach Amy Koskela said.

In the pivotal, momentum charging, first game, Ellie Rutten was a dominating presence at the net blasting balls back at Spartan hitters and making kills at key points during some long rallies.
