The Northfield volleyball team had high hopes coming into the season. They are higher now. The Raiders halted Wayzata's 65-match winning streak Saturday en route to the Southwest Minnesota Challenge title in Marshall, defeating the Trojans 25-23, 28-26 in the semifinals. Wayzata, winner of the past two Class 4A state championships, last lost in October 2019. The Trojans dropped to No. 2 in the state rankings, and Northfield replaced them at No. 1, rising from No. 6. "The girls were very poised and handled the pressure well," Northfield coach Tim Torstenson said.
