The Pierre Governor Volleyball traveled to Sioux Falls Washington on Thursday night in the SoDak 16 looking to advance to the state tournament next week Thursday but were unable to knock off the Warriors as they fell in straight sets 25-16, 25-21 and 25-21.
Pierre fell behind early in all three sets but the second set was toughest as they had to climb an 11-3 gap and closed it to 11-10 but were unable to get any closer as they trailed to the conclusion of set two. The Govs never lead in any of the three sets in the loss as the season records end at 8-13.
For Pierre, seniors Hanna Jerome, Mikah Moser, Kodi Severyn, Addy Smith, Emry Heiss, Josi Stevens, Catie Natvig, Natalie Mohr and Kenzie Kuxhaus had their Governor career come to an end.
Washington advances to the state tournament next weekend in the 4-5 matchup as they will face the four seed Sioux Falls Roosevelt in the first round of the Class AA tournament.
