HUMBOLDT — Humboldt High School volleyball swept Erie and Yates Center Monday in a home meet. 

With the wins, the Lady Clubs (20-3; 1-0) claimed their 20th victory of the season.

It was also a special night for Lady Cub junior Kenisyn Hottenstein, who reached a milestone of 1,300 career assists with Humboldt. She was honored after the Erie match with a poster, balloons and a picture with her team.

Defensively, Shaughnessy made one block while S. Hottenstein led with eight digs and Wools registered five digs. Shaughnessy had three digs while K. Hottenstein recorded two digs. 

“I was very pleased with our level of play tonight. After having a long day Saturday, I did not know if the girls would be tired and have a slow night, but that was not the case.  We came ready to play and I was very pleased with our energy,” said Humboldt head coach Terry Meadows. 

In the second match, Humboldt took down Yates Center, 25-13 and 25-10. 

Shaughnessy and Wools led at the serving line with four aces while S. Hottenstein had three. Shaughnessy also led offensively, knocking eight kills while Wools made four kills and Ella Lassman ripped three. 

“We served very well again and hit the ball well tonight. We started league play this week so we are 1-0 in league and 20-3 overall,” said Meadows.

S. Hottenstein led defensively with eight digs, followed by K. Hottenstein’s five digs and Natalie Wells and Shaughnessy’s three digs apiece. Wools tallied two digs.
