The Mississinewa Lady Indians Volleyball team improved to 6-1 on the year with a win over the Bluffton Tigers last night on Fredenberger Court. Mississinewa was able to win a very competitive first set 26-24. In set two Mississinewa was able to pull away a little more winning the second set 25-18. Mississinewa fell in set three 25-19 after Bluffton battled back with a lot of energy that stunned the Lady Indians. During set three a questionable call against Mississinewa saw Senior Jazzy Nicholson eventually receiving a yellow card, firing up her team. Set four saw a very worn out Bluffton team against an aggravated and fired up Mississinewa team. The Indians pulled away in the final set winning 25-7 to improve to 6-1 on the year. The Indians are back in action Wednesday as they host Northfield at 6pm.
