Alexandria split four matches at the Apple Valley Volleyball Tournament this past weekend.

The Cardinals played against some tough competition from the metro area and came away with wins over Eagan and Burnsville and losses to Shakopee and Blaine. Both the losses went to a decisive third game after the Cardinals fell behind one game to nothing before winning the second game in both matches.

"In these matches, the girls made too many unforced errors, something that doesn't frequently occur," head coach Becky Anderson said. "On a positive note, the girls were able to take a game from each team without playing up to their full potential. The weekend was full of good competition and it was exciting to see the girls have to put forth 100 percent effort in order to win."

Sam Dale led her team at the net over the weekend with 34 kills in the four matches. Ari Carlson also contributed with 21.

Setting them up were Katie Brown and Keely Gross, who racked up 48 and 39 assists, respectively. Dale also led the team in digs with 44, and Val Smith chipped in with 33.
