The Ellsworth High School volleyball team got a win on senior night Tuesday in Ellsworth with a 25-21, 25-14, 21-25, 25-7 victory over Durand.
Panthers senior Jessy Tingelhoff finished with 10 kills, 21 assists, six digs and three ace serves while senior Abbey Ristow led the team with 19 kills.
Ellsworth also got 10 assists and four kills from sophomore Olivia Helmer and junior Kenzie Diercks added 10 digs and six kills.
The seeding meeting for the playoffs will take place today for the Panthers and Ellsworth, which concluded the regular season 16-12 overall and 5-2 in the Middle Border Conference, should get a top-four seed in its Division 2 regional which will allow them to host a first round match next Tuesday.
EHS had an outside shot of getting a share of the MBC title but despite their win Osceola fell to Somerset 3-1 Tuesday and Baldwin-Woodville swept New Richmond, which means the Spartans and Blackhawks will share the 2011 title. Ellsworth finishes third.
