Monte upsets Benson


GRANITE FALLS -- Montevideo has been the underdog all the way through Section 3AA-North, but they sure haven't played like it.

Against the odds, the Thunder Hawks swept Benson Thursday night in the YME gym 27-25, 25-20 and 25-18 to capture the sub-section championship.

"I'm overwhelmed," said Beka Schwendemann, a senior hitter who posted 11 kills. "Everyone's playing so well and improving. We just keep getting better."
