Region 8: No. 2 Dyersville Beckman 3, No. 12 Durant 0 (25-20, 25-11, 25-23)

The glossy record is nice. The No. 2 ranking is cool. But there’s some baggage that goes with that. You’ve got to learn how to carry it around.

“Just the expectations,” Dyersville Beckman volleyball coach Todd Troutman said Tuesday night, after his team swept Durant in a Class 2A regional final. “It’s tough. It’s a lot easier being the hunter than the hunted.”

Beckman will be one of eight hunters next week at the state tournament in Cedar Rapids. This is the first time since 2000-01 the Blazers are state bound in back-to-back years.

High expectations are nice. But they also carry a burden.

“These girls were under a lot of pressure,” Starmont volleyball coach Robert Goedken said. “In the public's eye, we were going to state before the season even started.”

And now, the expectations are fulfilled.
