C-Team volleyball sweeps Huskers

On the road again the Kimball Cubs C-team volleyball took five sets from the Holdingford Huskers. The Cubs didn't know what to expect from the Huskers as we were asked to play five sets instead of the usual three because of the high numbers of volleyball players Holdingford has. We began the match playing three sets against their "C-team" group and won all three by scores of 25-11; 25-17 and 15-4. Against the Husker "B-team" group we played only two sets, and again won both with scores of 25-10 and 25-21. Way to go Cubs!

Sets-46 attempts, 12 assists and 5 ace tips
