Girls sweep Eagle Grove

 

   The Clear Lake volleyball team opened its season with a full slate of matches last week. 
    Tuesday, the Lions hosted North Butler and Central Springs.  Although they captured games, the Lions were 0-2 in match play.  Thursday, Clear Lake bounced back with vengeance and swept Eagle Grove 3-0.


Tuesday Triangular
    Clear Lake started play Tuesday against North Butler.  The Bearcats won the match, 2-1, with scores of 25-18, 20-25, 15-13.

    On the evening, CLHS was lead by Kaitlyn Pitzen with 14 kills. She was joined by her teammate Carly Ouverson with 28 assists as a setter.
