Prep Volleyball: Jags on verge of another title
The BBE volleyball team, looking for its sixth straight Central Minnesota Conference championship, plays its biggest game of the season tonight, facing fellow CMC leader Pierz on the road.
The Jaguars and Pioneers are 5-0 in the CMC with each having one conference match remaining after today.
BBE is 20-7 overall while Pierz is 16-9 after dropping two matches in last weekend's Mora Invitational and then losing to Long Prairie-Grey Eagle on Tuesday.
BBE ends its conference schedule on Tuesday against Eden Valley-Watkins at home. EVW is currently 4-1 in the CMC and 13-7 overall.
Pierz finishes the regular season with a non-conference match at Little Falls on Monday, followed by its final CMC match on Tuesday against Maple Lake (currently 3-2 in the league and 15-10 overall.
The Jaguars' program is obviously used to the pressure that it will face tonight.
BBE finished second to Maple Lake in 2005-2006, the tied the Irish for the CMC championship in 2006-2007.
Since then, the conference crown has belonged solely to the Jaguars.
