MOORHEAD — After an impressive showing in pool play, the Fergus Falls volleyball team ran into tough competition as it fell to Osseo and Moorhead to take fourth at the Pumpkin Classic Saturday.
The Otters played two, tough sets against Osseo but could not pull out a victory falling 25-22, 25-21.
Fergus’ second match paired it against the hosting Moorhead Spuds. The Otters could not hold on to the momentum as it fell (25-19, 21-25, 15-13) to the Spuds.
Devonie Smith led the Otters in defense with 36 digs, while teammates Brianna Rasmusson and Ashley Reinertson were active in front of the net, recording five and three and a half blocks, respectively.
The Otters received the second seed in the Section 8AA South and will host Wadena-Deer Creek 7 p.m. Thursday at the Kennedy Secondary Gold Gym.
