Three Owatonna High School seniors get another chance to play in their home gym Wednesday night in the first round of the Section 1AAA volleyball tournament.

No. 6 seed Owatonna opens at home versus No. 11 seed Rochester John Marshall on October 28 at 7PM. Coverage will be heard on KRFO AM 1390. The winner travels to No. 3 seed Farmington on Friday night. Owatonna (16-11) swept the Rockets (9-17) in Rochester in late September. OHS lost 2-1 to Farmington (16-10) during a weekend tournament earlier this season.

Top five-ranked Lakeville South (23-5) is the top seed in the section. Big Nine champ Rochester Mayo (24-2) is the second seed.

KRFO Radio recently caught up with seniors Carli Langeland, Karissa Hilstad and Elise Oppegard. Our interview was held in a round-table style.
