The Southwestern Community College volleyball team rolled to yet another sweep, and in doing so, picked up its 30th win of the season.

The Spartans defeated Iowa Lakes 25-14, 25-15, 25-10 here on Wednesday, improving to 30-9 for the season and 8-2 in the ICCAC.

“This was our 30th win tonight,” head coach Melissa Blessington said. “Our team played really well and I am very happy that we executed the whole match. We had great contribution off of our bench with Sydney Whitmarsh and Kirsten Anderson. It is great to know that we are able to bring in players and have them make a difference.”

Janaya Fox finished with a team-high 11 kills, as Shelby Sullivan added five and Allyson Kocour, Alex Duffy and Cassidy Yong each recorded four kills.

Yong set 24 assists for the Spartans in the winning effort and finished with two blocks and seven digs. Molly Schimp led the team with 11 digs and served 6-of-7 with two aces. Alex Duffy had a team-high three blocks.

Southwestern returns to action tonight at home against Graceland’s JV team at 6 p.m. in the regular season finale.

“We are hoping to finish strong against Graceland and make that push toward regionals,” Blessington said.
