In their first state tournament appearance in 12 years, the Centennial Cougars played a solid match but ran into a better team and Lakeville North scuttled them in four games at Xcel Energy Center.
The No. 2 seeded Panthers took the first game 25-19. The Cougars pulled even 25-23. After that, the Panthers’ speed and skills around the dial took over 25-12 and 25-20.
