IRON RIVER - Forest Park held off West Iron County in the third set and recorded a 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 26-24) sweep in high school volleyball Tuesday at Charles Greenlund Gymnasium.
"We were slow and did not communicate well," Forest Park Coach Kim Bjork said. "It was not a good match for us.
"Yes, we won but we didn't play at the level we are capable of."
Forest Park (19-3-3 overall, 6-0 Skyline) travels to Carney-Nadeau on Thursday. West Iron entertains Northland Pines of Eagle River, Wis., and L'Anse.
Lexi Gussert garnered 20 Forest Park kills. Mindy DeNell, Gina Graff, Maria Stankewicz, Abby Sommers and Gussert combined for 66 digs.
"We seem to be on a rollercoaster ride this year," Bjork said. "We need to find some consistency and we need to have more girls contribute at the net."
West Iron defeated Forest Park 2-1 in the jayvee match.
