Cowgirls lose to Lynx, defeat Iowa Falls-Alden on the road

Sann and Celeste Swanson both have 18 kills, Polzin 29 digs vs. Cadets

  The Clarion-Goldfield-Dows varsity volleyball team continues a great season by knocking off yet another rated team. This time it was Iowa Falls-Alden (8th in Class 4A) that fell to the Cowgirls in five sets last Thursday night in Iowa Falls. Set scores were: W26-24, L25-17, L25-11, W25-20, W15-13.

  “We continued our momentum from the Tuesday match with Webster City, coming out tough against the Cadets,” said a pleased head coach Katrina TerHark. “We knew we had to come ready to play. We knew they have some tough servers and hitters, so we had to be on our passing, defense and serve receive and we started the night just that way. The first set win was huge for us, but we weren’t as strong in the second and third. We battled back in the fourth set to win that. The Cadets went up 5-2 in the deciding fifth set, then we tied it and the Cadets went up again 8-5. We tied it again and took a two-point lead. The momentum and points went back and forth before Jossie stepped up and smashed a kill for match point to seal the win.”
