ARMSTRONG – The Armstrong-Ringsted volleyball team lost 3-0 to Ventura on Thursday. Statistics from that match and the match with Harris-Lake Park were unavailable at press time.

Earlier this week

While the Armstrong-Ringsted suffered losses to both North Iowa and Twin River Valley earlier this week, the Mustangs are getting better.

“Our wins and losses are not showing the areas of improvement,” said A-R coach Sandy Tigges. “We have been serving about 90 percent. We have set up an offense more in the last two games than at the beginning of the year. Our next step must be to earn more kills.”

On Monday, A-R traveled to Buffalo Center where North Iowa came away with a 25-16, 25-22, 25-9 victory.
