Press Staff Report

WAUKON — Volleyball is a game of peaks and valleys.

During their Northeast Iowa Conference away match against Waukon on Tuesday, the Charles City Comets found themselves in valleys too deep early on in the sets they lost to the Indians, unable to climb out while dropping the match 3 games to 1 (25-18, 19-25, 25-19, 25-13).

As is often the case in football, it’s nice to have good blocking in volleyball, too. Waukon junior middle hitter Berlin Troendle had three blocks that all resulted in points — all part of her match-high 22 kills.

Indian junior setter Maggie Criswell had a match-high 30 assists.

Comet junior Morgan Maloy had 18 assists and two service aces; sophomore Emma Miller had 12 digs and three service aces; senior Rachel Chambers had 15 digs and six kills; senior Kaylee Anderson had 11 kills; and freshman Mya Rimrod had 13 digs for the Comets.

Both teams were 7-7 overall after Tuesday’s match.

On Saturday, Charles City will host a tournament including New Hampton, Oelwein, Tripoli, South Tama and Central Springs. The tentative start is 8:30 a.m.
