The Wildcats won three matches while dropping nary a set in defeating Altoona-Midway, Uniontown and Yates Center,  improving to 9-3 on the season.

Marmaton Valley defeated Altoona-Midway, 25-19 and 25-18, cruised to a straight-set 25-15, 25-15 romp over Uniontown and ended with a 25-13, 29-17 victory over Yates Center.

The visiting Yates Center squad prevailed in its other two matches in the quadrangular, rolling past Uniontown, 25-12 and 25-14, before dumping Altoona-Midway, 25-20 and 25-8.

There’s a chance Marmaton Valley and Uniontown won’t have to wait long to resume their rivalry. Both, as well as Crest, will be in Humboldt Saturday for the Humboldt Invitatonal Tournament.
