Cowgirls defeat Eagles in three sets

Polzin has three aces, 25 digs

By Les Houser

  Even with three injured players on the bench, the Clarion-Goldfield varsity volleyball team had more than enough to defeat Eagle Grove last Tuesday night in three straight sets. The Eagles did stay within striking distance in the first two, going down 25-19, 25-19. The final set was a bit easier as C-G took that 25-12 to close it out. Jenalee Hinkle and Hannah TerHark were both out of the rotation, joining Jossie Sann as Cowgirls currently sidelined.

  The team served at 94.5 percent for the evening, with three Cowgirls finishing at perfect numbers for the match. Hope Polzin was 19 of 19 with three ace serves, Shelby Engh 13 of 13 with one ace and Hannah Kapka 11 of 11. Maddie Disney was 12 of 13 with an ace, Mara Warnke 9 of 10 with an ace and Celeste Swanson 5 of 7 with an ace.

  Kapka had eight assists as setter, with Disney making two and Rector one assist. Celeste managed seven successful spikes to lead the attack, with Sydney TerHark pounding three kills. Disney, Kapka, Polzin and Lili Swanson all chipped in with one kill apiece.
