The WEM volleyball team ended the three-year reign of Mayer Lutheran as the top team in Class A Section 2 after downing the Crusaders in five sets Saturday, Nov. 2 at Mankato East High School. The Bucs downed Mayer Lutheran by scores of 20-25, 25-17, 20-25, 25-19, and 15-13 in the championship match. The Class A State Tournament starts Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. This will be the second State appearance for the Bucs. In 2015 they claimed the Class A State Championship.
