The Greene County volleyball team lost both matches in a triangular Sept. 24 at North Polk. North Polk and Winterset took the Rams in three sets.

“It was good to have so many strong volleys against two good teams,” stated coach Chris Heisterkamp. “But we have to keep working on consistency and stronger finishes. I see improvement and we will carry that into our upcoming competitions.”

Setter Aubrey Heupel surpassed the 1000-career assist mark earlier this season. She was honored in a presentation at the Sept. 19 volleyball match. She will again receive recognition at the football game Friday night.

North Polk 25-25-25
Rams 18-15-14
Greene County lost a 3-0 match to HOIC member, North Polk 25-18, 25-15, 25-14.

Brianna Osterson led the team with five kills, followed by Sophia Havens with four and Natalie Heupel with three.
Osterson and Aubrey Heupel each served 11/11, Heupel with two aces and Osterson with one. Also having perfect stands at the line were Paige Heaning, Katrina Heupel and Harleigh Weir.

Libero Paige Hearing posted 12 digs while Katrina Heupel had 11. Aubrey Heupel set eight assists.

Winterset 26-25
Rams 24-17
After pushing Winterset to extra points in the first set, the Rams succumbed 24-26. The second set went to the Huskies 25-17.

Osterson topped the team with eight kills. Natalie Heupel had three and Aubrey Heupel, two.

Heaning served 12/12, Katrina Heupel 11/11, and Osterson 4/4. Each of the three stroked an ace. The team went 41/42 for 98 percent.

Heaning covered the floor to pick up 12 digs and Aubrey Heupel set 10 assists.

“Our serving was fantastic at Alleman, missing only one time each match,” noted Heisterkamp. “Overall, passing was better, so we were able to get more action from our hitters. We couldn’t find our groove with North Polk and let too many errors slow us down. In our second match against Winterset (Set 1), we were behind and fought back hard to stay in the game. The action went back and forth, taking it to a 26-24 finish. In Set 2, we came out quick with a 7-0 lead, but unfortunately we let it slip away and couldn’t rally back.”

The Rams travel to Ogden for a triangular with the host school and SE Valley on Thursday beginning at 5 pm. They host Roland-Story on Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 6:30.
