After a rough tournament in Pella over the weekend, the Prairie City-Monroe volleyball team opened its week with a more pleasant result.

The Mustangs (8-16, 4-4 Heart of Iowa Conference) went 70-for-74 from the service line with 21 aces to earn a 3-0 sweep of county foe Colfax-Mingo in Colfax Tuesday night.

Senior Kelsey Townsend led the Mustangs with seven kills on the night, while fellow senior Alex Samson paced the offense with 12 assists. Junior Abbi Gilson led the team with seven digs, while also recording five kills and six aces.

Samson went a perfect 19-for-19 from the line, while Gilson went 12-for-12, junior Cassidy Van Veen went 12-for-13 and junior Taylor Davenport went 11-for-12 with five aces.

The loss drops Colfax-Mingo to 0-20 overall on the year, with an 0-7 mark in the conference. Both teams will be back in action on Thursday with PCM traveling to Roland-Story and the Tigerhawks playing in a triangular in Nevada.
