Hillcrest swept Ashby 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-21) in a Little Eight Conference volleyball match on Tuesday night as the Arrows held their senior night.

The Comets were led by Diamond Twedt (4/4 serving, 1 ace serve, 3 serving points), Ella Knutson (1 ace serve, 4 serving, points, 7 kills, 7 digs), Hope Adams (1 ace serve, 8 kills, 3 digs, 1 block kill), Emily Adams (2 ace serves, 5 serving points, 7 kills, 6 digs, 1 block kill), Ruby Peterson (3/3 serving, 1 ace serve, 2 serving points), Natalie Zwiers (3 ace serves, 5 serving points, 1 kill, 2 digs), Anna Brumfield (5 ace serves, 10 serving points, 1 set assist, 6 kills, 6 digs), Henrietta Ruud (11 set assists, 4 digs), Madi Foss (9/9 serving, 2 ace serves, 4 serving points, 1 kill, 13 set assists, 10 digs) and Madison Ballweg (2 ace serves, 5 serving points, 1 set assist, 17 digs).

“Tonight everyone had a part in the win,” said Hillcrest Head Coach Debi Foss. “We were able to get everyone into the match and contribute to what was a nice victory.  Nine out of ten players had at least one ace serve tonight for a team total of 18. While the lineups looked a little different for both teams due to injuries, it was still a good night of volleyball. Our play was a little “flat” at times but I’m glad we could attack at just the right moments to win the match in three. We will play in the Fergus Otters Blocktoberfest on Thursday which will be good preparation for section play-offs next week.”
