Rebels are runner-up

ANAMOSA -- Northeast bounced back from a three-set loss in its opening match to beat Anamosa and Bellevue, and the Rebels finish second Saturday at the Anamosa volleyball tournament.

"(It was a) much more consistent day for the Rebels," coach Brenda McKone said after her team improved to 8-10. "(They) came out strong and did a much better job of maintaining their intensity and focus throughout the tournament."

North Linn (7-9), which rebounded from a first-set loss to beat the Rebels 14-21, 21-13, 15-13 in the opening match, captured the tournament title with a 3-0 record. Bellevue also took the Lynx to three sets.

Addie Oberman led the Rebels with 21 kills, while Breanne Butler added nine and a team-high six blocks. Kelsey Carder led the way with 22 digs. Courtney Stoll recorded 28 assists, 17 digs and seven ace serves, and Tierra Hildebrandt finished with nine kills, 14 digs and seven aces.

Bellevue (4-14) had even distribution of its statistics, led by Ashley Giesemann's 16 kills, Jackie Kremer's 14 assists, Carly Rubel's 15 digs and Maddie Hiland's six service aces.

Sabers finish 2-2

MONTICELLO -- Central DeWitt finished 2-2 on Saturday at the Monticello Invitational.

The Sabers defeated Marion Linn-Mar and Monticello and lost to Davenport Assumption and West Delaware, ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, in the Class 4A state ratings.

Katie Irwin totaled 28 kills to lead the Sabers (6-15), including nine against Linn-Mar. Mackenzie Kuehn was the assists leader with 63, and Olivia Haack recorded 16 digs.

CLARENCE -- Calamus-Wheatland won just one game Saturday at the North Cedar Invitational, losing all four of its matches.
