Osky volleyball upsets #5 Dallas Center-Grimes

The Oskaloosa High volleyball team upset fifth ranked Dallas Center-Grimes Tuesday night (9/10) in Oskaloosa.  The Indians took the first two sets, 25-17 and 25-23 before DCG rallied to take the next two sets 25-8 and 25-20.  DCG then took a 5-0 lead in the deciding fifth set, only for the Indians to come back and win 18-16.  Indians Coach Jen Comfort says her team has been playing well all season.

“We told the girls do your job, and do your job great.  This year we’re really focusing on not just being good, but being great and finding ways that we can be great without our own goal and knowing what that is on the team.”

The No Coast Network asked senior Emily Richmond how big this victory is.

“This is huge.  Honestly I think this might be….This team in general might go to State, but this might have given us so much confidence and it’s a good start to the season.”

Oskaloosa is now 6-4 overall and 2-0 in the Little Hawkeye Conference.  The Indians are off until Saturday (9/14) when they play at a tournament at Southeast Polk.
