LA CROSSE, Wis. — The Ridgewater volleyball team got back in the win column with a four-set road victory against Western Tech on Saturday.

The Warriors won 19-25, 25-18, 25-20, 25-20.

“We finished out the weekend strong by adding another win,” said Ridgewater head coach Amanda Bohlsen. “We struggled early to find our rhythm in both offense and defense but we were able to make the correct adjustment and start connecting in the second.

“The team worked hard all weekend and we look forward to a light game week coming up.”

Morgan Mandel led the Warriors’ offense. The former Annandale Cardinal had 12 kills along with seven blocks. Madison Leyendecker, from Paynesville, tallied 35 set assists along with five digs, three blocks, two kills and an ace serve.
