Warrior spikers drop three of four at Kirkwood Tournament

CEDAR RAPIDS — A tough weekend against some of the toughest teams in NJCAA Division II at least didn’t end without the Indian Hills volleyball team earning at least one win in the Kirkwood Tournament. After losing the first three matches of the tournament, all to top-10 teams in the latest NJCAA DII poll, the Warriors closed out the tournament at Johnson Hall edging Iowa Central in the second five-game match of the weekend.

IHCC, which lost a 2-1 lead to No. 10 (DII) Kishwaukee to close out play Friday in a 25-19, 20-25, 22-25, 25-23, 15-12 setback, bounced back after also dropping sweeps to top-ranked (DII) Cowley College (25-15, 25-11, 25-8) and No. 6 Johnson County (25-12, 25-16, 26-24). The Warriors beat the Tritons from Fort Dodge, rallying from a 2-1 deficit to earn its only win in Cedars Rapids with a 19-25, 25-16, 25-27, 25-23, 15-9 victory. It was the fifth match already this season for the Warriors to go the distance.

Former Ottumwa Bulldog Peyton Crosser let IHCC at the net in the Warriors’ only win, going 46-57 hitting with a team-best 21 kills against Iowa Central. Crosser also went 36-40 in attacks in the five-game loss to Kiswaukee and 33-37 at the net against Johnson County.

Indian Hills (6-7) will look to get back to .500 on the season when the Warriors finally play its home match of the season Thursday night at the Tom Arnold Net Center in Ottumwa. IHCC will host Kirkwood at 7 p.m. There will also be a chance to meet Indian Hills basketball players and coaches prior to the game in the Net Center.
