Jackets turn tables on Magic

Aiming to finish the regular season strongly, Cambridge-Isanti volleyball had a good measuring stick match when they defeated visiting  Monticello in four games Oct. 4: 25-20, 25-20, 19-25, 25-18. The Magic swept the Jackets in three back on Sept. 6.

C-I pulled away in Game 1 when Sydney Larkin made an athletic save to help take a 21-18 lead. Alexis Landherr then finished off the game with two kills and a block, with one kill coming off a quick-set from Larkin.

Game 2 saw Emily Sorgert and Korbynn Felde notch kills from the left side for an early lead, then setter Kylie Baas repeatedly found Claire Sheehan for a good stretch which doubled the Magic at 12-6. Baas ended the solid night with 33 assists. Landherr totaled 14 kills, and Sheehan finished with 12.
