No. 20 NIACC wins pair at Iowa Lakes' tourney

ESTHERVILLE - The No. 20 NIACC volleyball team picked up a pair of wins at the Iowa Lakes' Captain Jack's Tournament on Saturday.

NIACC topped the St. Ambrose Junior Varsity 3-1 (25-18, 25-12, 22-25, 25-22) and stopped Red River (Candada) 3-0 (25-10, 25-8, 25-18).

"Our serving was very aggressive adding 34 team aces on the day," NIACC coach Chris Brandt said. "We also gave ourselves a lot of opportunities to keep the ball in play as we worked on those unique situations.

"It was a fun way to end our final regular season tournament."

NIACC returns to action Wednesday at home against Iowa Lakes in an ICCAC match.
