FIELD TWP—The Grizzlies improved to 2-0 during their home opener on Tuesday, as they beat Bigfork in three sets, 25-15, 25-22, and 25, 22.

Senior Coley Olson had a big night for the Grizzlies, posting 14 kills and ten set assists to lead North Woods.

“It was exciting to finally have a home game,” said Grizzlies Head Coach Kandi Olson, who said she’s excited to see how her team develops this season. “This year’s team is comprised of a good mix of experienced players and youthful energy,” she said. “The players are learning and growing every game.”

In addition to Coley Olson, three other seniors, including Karlyn Pierce, Kayla Tschida, and Kenzie Fox, are expected to play a leading role in the team’s success this season. Pierce posted six kills in Tuesday night’s contest, while Fox added three ace serves. Sophomore Olivia Udovich added ten set assists and four ace serves. She’s one of four sophomores on the team who are also likely to play a key role this year.

This week’s win comes in the wake of a 3-2 victory last week over International Falls.

The Grizzlies are set to host Deer River on Monday and will travel to Eveleth to take on the Golden Bears on Tuesday. Both games get underway at 7 p.m.
