ABERDEEN, S.D.--It had been since 2008 since Dakota Valley had beaten Sioux Falls Christian on the volleyball court. In fact, the Chargers beat the Panthers for the state title last year and had already knocked them off twice this season.
But in the state semifinals Friday night Dakota Valley got the last laugh. In a five-set thriller, DV knocked off SFC 3-2 on an ace by Lindsey Smith.
The second-seeded Panthers will play the four-seed, Winner, on Saturday at 8 PM for a state championship.
