When four Ashland Oredockers senior volleyball players stepped onto the court with their northern Wisconsin high school all-star teammates to face northern Minnesota’s all-stars Nov. 16 for the annual all-star volleyball game, the Wisconsin contingent didn’t bring a history of winning. The challenge is that, despite being amply talented, the Badgers typically enter the exhibition never having played with or against each other during regular season or in summer tournaments.

Golden Gophers all-stars come from schools that are closer geographically; the athletes often compete with and against each other. That familiarity provides an advantage which frequently translates into wins for Minnesota.
