REIGNING CHAMPS TAKE OUT TROJETS: No. 3-ranked (Class 1A) Janesville, the 2013 state champion, took care of Northeast Hamilton in three sets in an Iowa Star Conference volleyball match Thursday evening in Blairsburg.

The Wildcats (14-7, 6-0 ISC) were never threatened en route to a 25-4, 25-11, 25-10 sweep.

“We can’t complain about that match,” NEH head coach Kacey Pruismann said. “I would rather lose to a great team playing solid volleyball than win against anyone else while playing subpar. I like nights like these, playing up to the competition.”

Brooke Evans led NEH (1-21, 1-6 ISC) with three kills. Lillian Chamness distributed four assists and Tiffany Werner Moore had three.

Cassidy Nerland led the defense with six digs. Evans, Taylor Olson and MaKayla Tapper all had two.

Chelsey Wagoner collected nine digs, while Anderson added six and Keni Geis four.
