Osage 3, Humboldt 0
The Osage Green Devils continued their theme this year: #AllAboard.
#6 Osage took down #12 Humboldt in straight sets last night to capture the 3A Region 3 crown. This is head coach Andie Olson.
Sophomore outside hitter Dani Johnson led the Green Devil offensive onslaught with 17 kills. Sydney Midlang added 15 in the match. Osage fell behind by five points in set number one and trailed 19-17 in set number two but ended those matches on runs to finish off Humboldt 25-21 and 25-20. Oslon says her team is young but inexperience didn’t phase them last night.
Fifth seeded Osage will face fourth seeded Davenport Assumption next Wednesday in Cedar Rapids at 10 am. We’ll start our pregame show at 9:45.
New Hampton 3, Camanche 0
