Parker defeated NORTHWESTERN in the Bon Homme tourney

Don't sleep on Parker in CLASS A volleyball
Sep 22, 2017

By Rich Winter

Early in the season I was kind of looking at this Parker Pheasent team as a sleeper in Class A volleybal. The Pheasants have just moved from Class B and Jill Christensen has a heck of a program over there.

BUT, Parker lost to McCoook/Central-Montrose and then to Chester Area and then to TEA Area.

On Sep. 12, Parker was 4-3


Since then, 9-0 but not just any 9-0.


In the finals of the Bon Homme tournament, Parker took down an 18-1 and top-ranked Northwestern team that has just been killing folks all year. 


Nobody takes down Northwestern but Parker sliced them up pretty good, winning the final in best two of three: (25-16) (10-25) (25-18)


This week, Parker just kept rolling!

On Sep 9, Parker lost to Chester: 25-18) (25-14) (21-25) (17-25) (9-15)

On Sep 21, Parker ROLLED Chester: (25-16) (25-14) (25-15)


They went from losing a match to DOMINATING a match.


Clearly, Christensen's girls have improved.


Beat Baltic on Thursday and now this group heads to the Pentagon tournament in Sioux Falls. 


Look out for this group, they have moved into the rankings and everyone ranked in front of them should be on HIGH UPSET ALERT should they tangle
