The Cardinals defeated Benson and RCW while losing to New London-Spicer in pool play. The Willmar then defeated a strong Central Minnesota Christian team in tournament play to earn the shot against BBE.

NLS lost to BBE in the other tournament semifinal 25-21 and 25-20.

"Overall it was a good day for the Cards," said head coach Traci Grussing, "and it was great to get some extended playing time as this was our first tournament of the season."

Willmar's Emily Minnick had 62 kills in the five matches and setter Riley Grussing had 109 set assists and 10 service aces.
