The Dell Rapids Quarrier volleyball team notched another win on the 2017 season with a Dak-12 Conference win over the Canton C-Hawks on Tuesday, September 12th, at Dell Rapids High School. It was just the second home match for the Quarriers on the season. Dell Rapids won by scores of 20-25, 25-12, 25-14, 25-11.
Dell Rapids got out to an early 7-2 lead in the first set, but Canton went on a 13-1 run to take a 16-8 lead before holding on for the 25-20 first set win. The Quarriers did not give up momentum in the next three sets as they took early leads in all of them. In all three set wins, Dell Rapids was able to keep the pressure on Canton and pull away for the victory.
Head Coach Jessica Ahlers said, “After a slow start in the first game, the girls were able to gain momentum and turn it around for the win. As we head into our game against Tri-Valley on Thursday, our key to success will be on keeping our service errors to a minimum and tightening up our blocks.”

Maria Jackson had 1o kills in the match along with four aces and nine service points. Trinity Gordon had 20 digs and 10 kills. Sydney Stofferahn finished with eight kills and a block.
