HENDERSON — It had been eight years since the Johnson-Brock football team had won a game in the state playoffs, but the Eagles finally broke through Thursday in Henderson.

Johnson-Brock’s Brynn Westenburg is more than a setter. She’s a record setter. The senior recently broke the Class D-1 state record for career assists, moving past the 2007 mark of 2,550 by Lawrence-Nelson’s Julie Wehrman. Westenburg set the record in a recent victory over Diller-Odell.

Early thoughts of destiny were wiped away by Johnson-Brock’s balance. A day after overcoming two large deficits — including a 13-6 fifth-set margin — to beat Norfolk Lutheran in the opening round of the Class D-1 state tournament, West Point GACC overcame a 20-12 hole for a 26-24 win in the opening set.
