NIACC tops Wartburg JV, 3-1

WAVERLY - The NIACC volleyball team topped the Wartburg College Junior Varsity 3-1 on Friday night.

NIACC won 25-11, 25-11, 20-25, 25-16.

"We definitely played down at times," NIACC coach Chris Brandt said, "but we did enough to win the match.
 
We need to continue working on being smart on our offense but aggressive. Our defense made some incredible plays to keep the ball in play and those opportunities are so great to keep the momentum on our side."
NIACC was led by sophomore Kennedy Meister, who recorded 18 kills, 20 digs and three ace serves.
Also for the Lady Trojans, Bri Powers had 15 digs, Tessa Sienknecht had 11 assists, Megan Hollander had 4 kills, Kayla Lentz had 10 digs, Becca Steffen had seven kills, 27 assists, and seven digs, Shelby Heston had kills and Alexa Loftus had 12 kills, three ace serves and 12 digs.
NIACC returns to action Wednesday at home against Kirkwood in an ICCAC match, which starts at 7 p.m.
"We have the weekend off and then prepare for another week at home," Brandt said.
