WINONA &045; The Winona Winhawks were scrappy, but it wasn’t enough against an Albert Lea High School volleyball team that was almost perfect in the most important aspects of the game.

The Tigers had just four passing errors and four service miscues Thursday while winning 3-1 at Winona by scores of 25-14, 25-18, 20-25 and 28-26.

&uot;Our girls played phenomenally well,&uot; said ALHS coach Gina Eppen. &uot;I’m proud to see the girls finish and put it all together &045; I’ve been waiting for it. They’re really maturing in pressure situations.&uot;
