The South Winn volleyball team advanced in its 1A Regional matchup last week as it defeated Postville, 3-0 (25-7, 25-14, and 25-18), on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

“Postville is one of those teams you never want to overlook because they can get some fire in them and become really scrappy on defense,” said Warrior coach Glenna Munuswamy. “You hope that your girls have the right mentality to stay focused and aggressive in these matches and we did just that. They (South Winn) had a win on their minds and played with a high level of intensity.”
