After years of scoring points for the Braham Bombers on the volleyball court, senior Emily Lindquist reached her 1,000th kill on Sept. 19.

Emily Linquist reached her 1,000th career kill on Sept. 19. She celebrated with her parents, Sarah (far left), and Kurt (far right) as well as her coach Britne Engelking.

Lindquist has dominated for the Bombers up front for all of her high school career, and she finally saw her hard work pay off.

Head Coach Britne Engelking is proud of Lindquist for everything she has accomplished on and off the court.

“Emily Lindquist, daughter of Sarah and Kurt Lindquist, achieved getting her 1,000th kill on Sept. 19 while playing Dassel Cokato at the Sauk Rapids Rice invite. To my knowledge, this is the first Bomber in history to achieve this accolade. Along with that, she was also awarded the highest honors for her academics from her Junior Olympic Volleyball Team. Elo (what I call her) has averaged around a .580 kill percentage being able to hit the ball hard and also place the ball well. I am very excited to watch her finish out her senior year as a strong leader, excelling student and incredibly gifted athlete,” Engelking said.

Lindquist was honored by her team and fans during Braham’s win over Ogilvie on Sept. 28. The Bomber volleyball team has been playing well over their past couple games.

The girls have defeated Great River opponents in straight sets, back-to-back. On Sept. 26 they took care of Isle on the road. Then on Sept. 28, the girls took care of business against Ogilvie.

As the season winds down, the girl’s next match will be on the road when they head to East Central on Oct. 5.
