BLHS 3, Sleepy Eye 0
(25-11, 25-23, 25-15)
The Mustangs came into Sleepy Eye and cruised to an easy victory in three straight sets in a Tomahawk Conference matchup.
A slow start in set one was too much to overcome for the Indians as they would get swept in three straight sets despite playing better in set two.
Schieffert and Ibberson each had six kills for the Indians in the loss and Heiderscheidt had three kills. Ibberson also had three aces on the night. Alicia Ibarra had 12 assists.
The Indians now 2-10 on the season are looking to get back on track on Thursday when they travel to GFW to take on the Thunderbirds.
