The Iola Middle School volleyball team traveled to Prairie View Monday and the eighth-grade A and B teams both walked away with wins.
The A-team won in five-sets (25-14, 25-27, 21-25, 25-16 and 15-9).
We came out fired up and ready to play, head coach Terri Carlin said. We had beat them on Saturday and were looking for another win tonight. This was a good match for us. We had to fight back to win the set and the girls stayed strong and never gave up,
Dallyn McGraw had five aces and four kills and Caiden Cloud had three aces, a kill and two assists. Aysta Houk had an ace and four kills, Louise Caron had an ace and three kills, Cali Riley had an ace, Celina Caron had a kill, an ace and an assist.
The B-Team won in four sets (25-20, 25-11, 24-26 and 25-20).
Cloud and Abi Hurt each had 10 aces. Cloud also had a kill and five assists.
Caiden is one of our most consistent players, Carlin said. She just always seems to be in the right place at the right time to get a pass, tip at the net, or make a great play to save the ball.

Louise Caron had three kills and Jadyn Kaufman and Celina Caron had two kills each.
