7th grade

Creston’s seventh-grade volleyball team won three of nine games at Lenox.

Group one played Lenox’s eighth grade and won two of five games. Groups two and three played Lenox’s seventh grade team and won one of four games.

“For team one, games one and two were great,” said coach Teri Keeler. “We hustled, talked, set it up and had several great volleys. And then game three we lost some of the intensity, although we rallied back to make it close as we did in game five. Serving was a huge factor for group two. We have to be able to get our serves over. There were some times when we looked good and got a good first pass to set things up.”

On Tuesday the Creston seventh-graders won eight of 17 games at Winterset.

Team one took six of eight games and two team went 2-7.

“The team one group played well after the first set, when we couldn’t pass for anything,” Keeler said. “We started moving our feet and getting to the ball, and got some good passes up. Strong serving was a key as well.”

Next action for the seventh-graders is Monday against Clarinda. The games will be played at Creston High School.
