Lady Devils lose pair on the road
WILLMAR — The Riverland volleyball team wrapped up a weekend on the road with a loss to Ridgewater on Saturday.
The road trip started out with a 3-0 loss to Minnesota West on Friday night in Worthington. Although they lost in three games, the Lady Blue Devils of Riverland were competitive in this Minnesota College Athletic Conference, South Division match.
Statistics in the opening match for the Lady Devils included; Robin Arjes 8 kills, 7 digs; Rebekah Aase 7 kills, 2 blocks, 2 ace serves; Laura Hemann 7 digs; and Brittney Dahl 17 set assists
"This was a close match, but we're still struggling to get the win," Riverland coach Sara Heim said. "We played hard, but lacked the compeitive edge."
Ridgewater defeated Riverland on Saturday by scores of 25-16, 25-8, and 25-20. This was also a MCAC South match.
Arjes once again led the Lady Devils at the net with six kills. Aase added four kills and eight blocks on the day. Dahl had 10 set assists and Hemann added eight digs with a pair of ace serves.
"Even though the score doesn't reflect it, we stepped up to the challenge in this match," Heim said. "We ran a fast offense and really were scrappy on defense. We really clicked as a team."
Riverland (0-12 overall, 0-5 MCAC South) returns to its home court on Wednesday night for a conference match against Anoka-Ramsey.
