With matches against East Central and Ogilvie during the second week in November, the 2020 Isle High School volleyball regular season came to an end. There may be a post season depending on the situation at IHS with regard to the teaching model employed by the Isle School District in the coming weeks due to the pandemic.
The Huskies finished the season with an overall record of 2-5 following a split in their matches with East Central and Ogilvie last week.

The Isle High volleyball team was looking to close out its regular season with a win over the Ogilvie Lions on Nov. 12, but ended up losing in five sets.
The Huskies won the first two close games and it looked like they were headed for a sweep.
In game one, senior Tommi Spengler continued her spectacular play all over the court, accounting for five of the first eight points with three kills and two aces. In all, the teams tied 14 times, including at 23-23, before Spengler slammed away the final two winning points. Spengler finished the first set with seven of Isle’s eight kills and added three aces to go with three aces from Jill Thompson.
Isle recorded 11 kills in game two and added three aces, with two coming off the serve of Jill Thompson for the final winning points.
But the Lions were not dead. During the next two sets, Ogilvie mounted two big scoring runs - one of 12-0 and another of 11-0 off the service of their libero to rout the Huskies and send the match into the fifth and final set.
Up 8-7 in game five, Ogilvie closed the match out with a 7-2 run. Spengler accounted for 14 of Isle’s 31 kills. Ogilvie had 47 kills.
