On moving to Class B, senior Emily Johnson had this to say, "The transition to Class B has been fun. It's a big change from Class C, that's for sure. Its fun being able to play against different competition. The bus rides are a lot longer now, but they are fun getting to spend time with my teammates."

For their second conference game of the season, Fairview lost the match against Wolf Point in five sets, 25-22, 21-25, 27-25, 9-25, and 11-15. Macy Tjelde led the offense with 16 kills and three aces. Emily Johnson put up ten kills of her own and added two blocks. Kallee Hopes added five kills and Savannah Manuel had two. Hopes also had 26 assists and 18 digs. Tjelde followed with nine digs, while Isabelle Fry and Abby Berry had eight digs each.
Senior Kallee Hopes stated, "I am excited to see where we end up this season. We have a lot of talent to offer this year, and I think if we keep working hard, we will achieve great success. Right now, our team is working toward 'WIN', which stands for 'What's Important Now'. I believe if we can keep working hard, we can reach our own personal goals as well as the team's goals. We just need to keep strong and keep fighting. Go Warriors!" Fairview hosts two non-conference matches this week, MonDak on Sept. 12 and Plentywood on Sept. 14 before traveling to Malta on Sept. 15.
