8th grade

Clarinda eighth-graders took six of nine sets against Creston here Monday. But the young Panthers rebounded to win five of nine sets at home against Mount Ayr Tuesday, including a 3-0 sweep by Team One.

“These young volleyball players stepped up their game,” coach Jan Lesan said. “The four games we lost were from trying to bump, set and spike. These young volleyball players were exciting to watch. They just keep getting better.”
