MCC netters split at NIACC tourney

MASON CITY — The Marshalltown Community College volleyball team went 1-1 during the NIACC Tournament on Saturday, highlighted by a three-set sweep of Iowa Lakes.

MCC (16-9) took down the Lakers by scores of 25-11, 25-22, 25-20, after having defeated them in a five-set contest earlier in the season.

In the nightcap, the Tigers fell in five sets to the host NIACC Trojans, 25-14, 18-25, 12-25, 25-23, 15-12.

MCC is back in action Thursday with a rematch against the William Penn junior varsity in Oskaloosa. The Tigers topped the Statesmen in a four-set contest a month ago in Marshalltown.
