ADMTheir record may not be indicative of a successful weekend, but head coach Mary Beth Scott says she is pleased with how her team battled in its tournament at Dubuque Hempstead.

The Tigers went 1-3 in their four matches against all Class 5-A schools, and Scott feels the experience will help her team be better prepared for postseason play in a couple weeks.

ADM dropped its first match to Muscatine 2-0.  Scott says both games were competitive throughout, especially the marathon second game, which the Tigers lost 28-26.

ADM then knocked off Davenport West convincingly, winning the two games by scores of 21-8 and 21-13 respectively.

Then the Tigers twice had to play former top-10 team Iowa City High.  ADM lost both games in the first match by scores of 21-6 and 21-18.  The second match was much more competitive, with the Tigers dropping both games by scores of 21-18 and 21-13.

Scott says the matches against Iowa City High in particular were a faster pace of volleyball than her girls had played all season, and she feels that facing that pace will be of great benefit in the weeks ahead.

The girls are back on the court tonight for Raccoon River Conference action.  ADM takes on Winterset on the road at 7pm.  A win would move the Tigers to 5-0 in conference play.
