“The first game was really exciting,” Albert Lea coach Jaime Mauseth said. “It was good we finished that game off and won that. Going into the second, third and fourth games we were making too many mistakes.”

The Tigers finished with nine ace blocks, two ace serves, 14 set assists and tallied 20 kills on the night.

Albert Lea is off until next Wednesday when they play in the first-round of the Section 1AAA tournament.
