FARGO – Hillsboro-Central Valley couldn’t hold back a streaky Oak Grove volleyball team Tuesday night.

The Grovers jumped out to 5-0 leads to open the second and third sets and pulled away for a 25-21, 25-16, 25-14 non-region win over the Burros.

Despite a balanced H-CV attack led by five kills from junior Sydni Culp, the Burros’ offense idled at key moments, allowing Oak Grove to convert off free balls and H-CV miscues.

“Our serve-receive in the middle of every set was a struggle,” said Burros head coach Katie Kolness. “We weren’t able to run our offense and they took it back to us.”
