Albia spikers sweep Sigourney

ALBIA — The Albia Lady Dees swept Sigourney in volleyball action Tuesday night in Albia.

Albia, who played very competitive, last Thursday at the Fairfield quadrangular, picked up their first win in their home opener. The loss, for the Savages, came in the team's season opener.

The game scores were 25-19, 25-18, and 25-19. The action in games one and two was close for most of each game before the Lady Dees took control at the end. Game three saw Albia pile up a big lead at 20-9 before closing out the match.

"I think our girls were able to stay focused for nearly the entire match," said Albia coach Tessa Simpson. "It was really important to them to play well in our home opener."

In game one, Jordan Carter had two early kills to give Sigourney a 7-6 lead. The Savage lead stretched to 10-7 as Madison Denny registered a kill at the net off an errant Albia pass.

Hannah Dustin's perfectly placed winner pulled the Lady Dees to within two. Four straight serves, one an ace by Zoee Hutt, gave the Lady Dees a 12-10 lead.

An ace serve by Karah Appleget pulled Sigourney back even at 14 and Carter's third kill gave the lead back to the Savages. Carter's fourth kill kept Sigourney up 18-17, but Albia would outscore Sigourney 7-1 as game one wound to a close.

Brooke Bettis took the serve with the score knotted at 18. When Bettis finished, the Lady Dees were up 24-18. The teams traded points to end game one.

Sigourney held a brief 4-3 lead early in game two, but back-to-back kills by Dustin and Katie Dyson gave the lead back to the Lady Dees. Another Dustin kill gave Albia a 12-7 lead.

Sigourney fought back to tie it at 12 on an ace serve by Brooke Schroeder. After Albia took the lead, they would lead for the remainder of game two.
