Caledonia volleyball ready for return trip to State

Posted: Updated:

The Caledonia high school sports machine is cranking out a pair of state-bound squads this week.
The volleyball team is headed back to state for the first time since 2012.

It's also just the second time in school history the Warriors will compete on Minnesota prep volleyball's biggest stage.
The Warriors are 28-5 on the season and are seeded third in Class A.
To become a state-caliber team they needed to improve on their ball control and attack efficiency.
They're hard work has paid off.

"We went to tournaments and played some of the best teams out there.   They really showed us our weaknesses.  So we came back in the gym and we worked on them everyday.  Everybody is just really invested right now.  We all just know that there's big stakes at hand and we all just want to get it accomplished.  So we just work hard," said senior Mariah Schroeder.
"We've played with a lot of the same people.  I just think our mentality is different.  I think we just wanted it more this year.  We wanted it in past years but I think just this year was different in our mentality," said junior Madisyn Heaney.

Caledonia plays Cook County in the Class A quarterfinals at the Xcel Energy Center Thursday at 3 PM.

Quarterfinal winners play Friday with the Class A Championship match set for Saturday at 1 PM.
