College volleyball: Ridge 2-2 against top competition at home


WILLMAR — When Ridgewater College stages an invitational, coach Joe Sussenguth doesn’t bring in pushovers.

The Warriors went 2-2 at their Friday/Saturday 5-team round-robin. Wins came against a tough Jamestown (N.D.) JV and top-10 rated Rochester.

Losses were to always strong North Dakota State College of Science and Central Lakes College, which is not ranked but should be with its second convincing win over the No. 5 Warriors already this season.
