Iola works for split decisions

Iola High's volleyball team had its share of high points, and a few struggles, in defeating Osawatomie but losing to host Burlington Tuesday. The Fillies have one more week of regular season action, with a tournament Saturday and a road match at Garnett next Tuesday.

BULRINGTON — An up-and-down night for Iola High volleyball led to a 1-1 record as the team contested a pair of its last matches of the season at Burlington.

In their first match against Osawatomie, Iola raced out to a great start, never trailing by more than four points in the first set. The second set saw Iola once again come out of the gates strong, opening up with a 9-0 lead before Osawatomie could get a chance to serve.
