Clearwater-Orchard picked up a 2-1 victory over Neligh-Oakdale on Tuesday night, sweeping the Neligh-Oakdale Triangular. Both teams defeated Osmond in two sets.
In the cross-county battle between the Cyclones and Warriors, 25-10, 21-25, 25-23.
"I thought the girls played a really good team game," said Clearwater-Orchard coach Shelly Mlnarik. "We kind of changed some things on offense and defense this last week, and they did a nice job adjusting to that and coming together as a unit."
Mallory Cooper led the Cyclones with 11 kills and three blocks. Kylie Thiele had a team-high 15 digs.
Neligh-Oakdale co-captain Kinsley Klabenes said, "It's a lot about our middles and blockers. They really get us pumped up when Chase (Vleck) and Natilee (Payne) get a good block. It gets the entire team going"
The Warriors were led by Danae Smith's seven kills and 14 digs. Payne added two ace serves.
