Otters volleyball coach Erickson says wait for state will be worth it

Fergus Falls volleyball coach Renee Erickson leapt into the arms of middle hitter Anna Monke, after Monke smashed the final kill for a section title over Thief River Falls.

It took her 15 full seasons of coaching to get to state. It’s been a sweet 16th season for Erickson, leading the Otters to their first trip to state ever.

“It was worth the wait,” Erickson said. “Now, we have to get ready and try to keep going. We have to go back to work.”

Fergus Falls has the No. 5 seed and will take on No. 4 seed Belle Plaine at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center.
