SW netters push Pirates from plank, 3-0

 

The 2013 Lady Warrior volleyball season got off to a great start on Thursday with a 3-0 win over Postville. However, the strength of the SW team was tested on Saturday as the Warriors faced Class 1A third-ranked Tripoli and Class 2A fifth-ranked Sumner-Fredericksburg in the opening rounds of the annual New Hampton Tournament.

A seven-serve string by Becca Franzen in game one against the Pirates gave the Lady Warriors a big advantage before Leah Elsbernd served up the last 12 points to hand Postville a 25-4 loss.

South Winn continued on its merry way to win games two and three, 25-8 and 25-14, to start the season. Megan Bushman collected a string of eight serves in game two to assist in the Lady Warrior win.
