The Waukon volleyball team got its 2017 season underway in convincing fashion with a season-opening sweep of Postville at home Monday, August 21 by set scores of 25-9, 25-10 and 25-14. Although the Indians’ 25 kills and 26 ace serves indicate some of the type of success they had, what may have been even more impressive than what they did on their side of the net was what they did not allow the visiting Pirates to do in the match, stifling the Postville squad that had not won a single match all last season to just one kill and no ace serves in Monday’s match.

The Indians were next slated to host MFL/MarMac Monday, August 28 before playing in the Mabel-Canton, MN Tournament Saturday, September 2. The Tribe netters will then open Northeast Iowa Conference play at Decorah Tuesday, September 5 before playing in the Crestwood Tournament Saturday, September 9.
