All the local volleyball teams were in action on Saturday with Clay Central-Everly and Sioux Central winning each's respective tournaments. Spencer traveled to Forest City and went 2-3, including a win over Lakes opponent Spirit Lake, 2-0.
CC-E continued their hot play with a 3-0 Saturday at the GTRA tournament in Ruthven. The Mavs defeated St. Marys Remsen, GTRA and Harris-Lake Park without dropping a set. CC-E has won 10 of its last 12 and is now 10-7 on the year.
"The first few games I think the girls were still learning their rotations," CC-E coach Abbee Gappa said. "Now they have it down and have done such a great job of playing together. We have the athleticism to play with anybody."
Sioux Central won the OA-BCIG tournament on Saturday after going 5-1. Their only loss came to OA-BCIG, who the Rebels later beat 2-1 in the finals.
The Rebels beat Manson NW Webster, 2-0, and Lawton-Bronson, 2-0, in the round-robin portion, while losing to OA-BCIG, 2-1. In the semis, they beat Lawton-Bronson again, 2-1, and then avenged the earlier loss in the finals.
"We played very well today. I knew my girls had the potential, it was just a matter of getting it all together," Sioux Central coach Sue Mattson said. "I'm hoping we will continue to play like we did (Saturday). My girls deserved to bring home the trophy."
Sioux Central (12-11) adjusted its rotation earlier in the season, moving Erin Rachuy to outside hitter. Rachuy had 13 kills in the win over OA-BCIG.
The Tigers beat Spirit Lake, 2-0, and Forest City, 2-1, at the Forest City tournament on Saturday. Spencer (10-10) lost to Algona, 2-0, Clarion-Goldfied, 2-0, and to undefeated Lake Mills, 2-0.
