Oskaloosa begins play Wednesday night (10/23) in the Class 4A Region 5 volleyball tournament. The Indians host Carlisle in a 7:00 game. These teams met on the first day of the season back in August, with the Indians winning two sets to one. Oskaloosa Coach Jen Comfort says setter Jolie Yang is recovering from an ankle injury and will share those duties with Olivia Gordon. Comfort talked about Gordon’s play.
“Olivia has done great. She has done above and beyond what we’ve asked her to do. I’m just really pleased with how well she has played; just melting in with these girls and just executed our game plan.”
