TIFFIN– They went out onto the floor, played their game, made improvements where needed, and ended WaMaC conference play on a positive note, Clear Creek Amana (CCA) coach Jackie Clubb said. The Clippers sank the South Tama Trojans 3-0 in a rather business-like manner Tuesday, Oct. 13, at home on Senior Night.

The Creek Girls took the first set, 25-17, with early kills from junior Lauren Helle and senior Ashley Prusha, and sailed through the second and third sets, 25-17 and 25-12.
Alyssa Weldon, also a senior, led the Clipper offense with a dozen kills. Weldon, Prusha, Megan Beckler, Corrine Schwarting and Mallory Allen were honored prior to the start of the final regular season home match.
The Clippers are home on Monday, Oct. 26, for a Class 4A regional quarterfinal match against Washington starting at 7 p.m. The winner travels to Marion on Thursday, Oct. 29, for the semifinal with the final, and a trip to the state tournament, set for Tuesday, Nov. 3, in Washington.
