In the opening round of the Niobrara Valley Conference tournament in Elgin Monday night, West Holt was unable to get the best of Clearwater-Orchard.
It took five sets of exciting volleyball, but the Cyclones came out on top in the end, 15-25, 25-16, 18-25, 25-13, 15-11.
The Huskies stormed out to a big lead in the first set, putting the Cyclones away easily. However, they were unable to stop the Cyclone attack as the match wore on, eventually giving way to Clearwater-Orchard.
Statistics for the Huskies will be added when they become available.
