Fort Dodge sweeps East

DES MOINES – The Fort Dodge volleyball team swept Des Moines East here Thursday night.

Beth Murman led the Dodgers (5-7 overall) with 13 kills, while Kacee Gollob added seven. Hannah Amhoff was 22-for-22 serving with five aces.

“We came out and took care of the ball from the beginning,” FDSH head coach Tonia Burrell said. “Our team is hungry. We wanted to come out and dominate and play like we are capable of.”

Josie Shirboun added 27 assists and Amhoff had 13 digs. Gollob and Amhoff each had four blocks.
