The Alta High volleyball team won a pair of games here Saturday, winning the Twin River Valley Tournament and remaining undefeated at 6-0.

Alta's Amy Huseman led the way in the back row with 11 digs.

"We had a great game offensively with C-W-L," Henningsen said. "Amy got the ball to our setters and our hitters put it away. We also served very well, which also got our offense going."

In game two, the Cyclones took care of Twin River Valley in four games, 25-10, 25-17, 19-25 and 25-19.

Hammer led once again at the net with 13 kills, with Hinkeldey adding nine. Peterson finished with six kills and Jessy Bibler five.

Hammer was 22 of 26 in attacking while Hinkeldey was 16 of 22. Peterson made good on 14 of 16 attacks.

Hammer and Huseman each added added eight digs, with Bibler adding six.

At the service line, Hammer was 16 of 16 and Schroeder 21 of 21. Brianna Aube was 16 of 17, and and Suhr 10 of 11.

"We had great net play and our back row was solid all day," Henningsen added. Alta played host to Storm Lake-St. Mary's Monday night but results were not available at press time.
