(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley had the home crown on the edge of their seats in the Wolverines regional quarterfinal win over Van Meter Tuesday in Greenfield. After winning the first set, Nodaway Valley dropped sets two and three before rebounding to close it out with wins in sets four (25-19) and five (15-13).
Head coach Carly Denton says this is right where her team expected to be at this point in the season. They set goals at the start of the year to do well in the regional tournament. Christine Gross and Sidney Reeves each had 8 kills against Van Meter. Megan McIntosh added 7 kills to go along with her three ace serves.
13-16 Nodaway Valley will no play 25-6 Des Moines Christian in Urbandale for the Class 2A Regional Semi-Finals on Friday night. The winner of that match will take on either Treynor or Griswold for a trip to state next Wednesday in Greenfield (10/31).
