Knights are too much for Warriors in regional

The gales of November came early as a blustery day ushered in Alta-Aurelia’s trip to Orange City for a second round Class 2A regional volleyball match with Unity Christian Oct. 23.

Would this be the year of winds of change as the Warriors brought a team with six seniors, 23 victories, a sea of red-clad fans to the home of the Dutch and their trophy-case full of volleyball success? Seniors for A-A seniors are Erin Lockin, Lauren Rohwer, Laney Stanton, Mary Barnes, Grace Newell and Lizzie Hill.

UC had 10 loses this season, but a strong second half of the season momentum continued with a 3-0 whitewash of the Warriors last Monday. Set scores were 25-14, 25-19 and 25-19 in favor of the War Eagle Conference champion Knights (22-10).

A-A finished the year 23-4 record and Henningsen gained the honor of Twin Lakes Coach of the Year.
