BBE (27-2) is now one step closer to reaching the state tournament. The Jaguars take on 6AA-South winner Benson Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Melrose High School. BBE has not appeared in the state tournament since the three towns consolidated.

"We were so pumped up and had all this nervous energy," said BBE coach Mimi Knutson. "Once they relaxed we found our groove."

Lensing led all players with 21 kills after making only five errors in 41 attacks. Hanson had 17 while Shanna Schmiesing had 19 for Sauk Centre (20-9).

Holly Thompson guided the BBE offense with 44 assists while Hansen also served five aces and piled up 16 digs. Tiffany Gruber had a team-high 18 digs.
