Lady Spartans sweep Anamosa, host West Delaware Thursday
ANAMOSA– Solon’s Lady Spartans did what they were supposed to do.
The varsity volleyball squad had a single match and no tournaments scheduled last week, traveling only to Anamosa for a 3-0 conference win.
Solon defeated Anamosa 25-12, 25-7, 25-12 to move to 17-3 on the season.
“Jordan Runge swung really well, and our serving game took them out of the match from the start,” reported head coach Peter Gustin.
Runge had 11 kills to pace the Lady Spartans, while Kelsey Cave added nine and Kelsey Hinrichs seven. Emma Rickels had 20 assists while Lepa Luavai had 12. Rylee Smith had 10 digs, with Hinrichs and Jordan Smith each adding five.
Smith was 13-13 from the service line with four aces. Hinrichs had a pair of aces, and the entire team went 67-71 with seven ace serves.
Cave led the Lady Spartans with three blocks, while Vik Meade had two.
Coming up for Solon is a big week, with home matches against two ranked opponents; Mount Vernon (Tuesday) and West Delaware (Thursday).
