Prep Volleyball: Martin County West clips BOLD in Section 2A final


ST. PETER — The BOLD Warriors offense seemed disconnected and by the end of the evening Saturday the defense was powerless as Martin County West laid claim to the Section 2A championship 25-22, 21-15, 25-21 and 25-10.

It was the second straight year that the Mavericks took out BOLD in the section final.

The Warriors got off to a fine start at Lund Center on the Gustavus Adolphus campus leading Game 1 22-19. The Mavericks scored the next six points to go up 1-0.
