RFHS volleyball falls to Brookfield

Central in five sets at state tournament: The Journal traveled to Green Bay to cover the RFHS volleyball team’s 2021 state appearance at the Resch Center on Thursday, Nov. 4. River Falls’ first-round matchup was against Brookfield Central, a higher seed that was projected to win the match.

River Falls won two of the first three sets and were in the driver’s seat going into set four.

Brookfield Central rallied to win both sets four and five to advance to the state title match. Even though River Falls lost, it was a compelling volleyball match between two great teams.
