Ridgewater topped College of Lake County and Anoka Ramsey in three games and then swept Alma College JV and Carthage County JV.

Leah Miller and Jordan Olerud had 25 kills apiece and Stephanie Tilman had 23 to lead the way for the Lady Warriors.

"We made great progress since our opening match against NDSCS," said Ridgewater coach Joe Sussenguth. "It was great to pick up four wins on the road. However, we know we have work to do as we'll face two tough conference opponents this week."

Ridgewater (4-1) blasted down 35 ace serves in the tournament while serving 92 percent. Sophomore setter Carina Fesenmaier had 12 ace serves to go along with 98 set assists, seven kills and five ace blocks. Olerud added eight ace serves. Darcie Listul led in digs with 25.

Ridgewater plays Riverland at Austin on Wednesday and at Rochester on Friday.
