Food drive a major success at Mesabi East tourney

AURORA — The Duluth Marshall volleyball team went a perfect 4-0 Saturday to win the Mesabi East Tournament, but the bigger story was the success of the tournament’s food drive event.

With all teams encouraged to bring nonperishable items to donate, the event was considered a huge success. When it was all said and done, all eight teams collected over 500 items with fans, parents and others bringing in cash donations as well.

Northeast Range donated the most as a team with Mesabi East coming in second. All items will be donated to the Aurora Area Food Bank.

On the volleyball side of things, North Woods finished as the highest placing area team as they fell to Marshall in the championship game 2-1 (16-25, 25-23, 15-7). Ely finished third after downing Wrenshall in the third place game 2-0 (25-21, 25-17).

Hosting Mesabi East claimed fifth place with a 2-1 win over Floodwood (25-17, 23-25, 18-16) while Northeast Range finished in seventh after defeating Chisholm 2-0 (25-20, 25-13).
