HAMPTON – Newly-ranked Algona’s volleyball team rode into Hampton on Tuesday, Oct. 1 with a nine-game winning streak.

And Hampton-Dumont was in the process of changing its offense.

It made for a disadvantage for the home team as the No. 15 (Class 3A) Algona Bulldogs pulled out three straight, 25-13, 25-13, 25-13 to win their 10th match in a row.

“We just started yesterday with a new 6-2 offense,” Hampton-Dumont coach Cinda Barz said. “Because we have been playing 5-1 and I finally got another setter to work. We brought in a libero and it’s different for her and who she is playing next to. I knew going into this, this is not the greatest timing to set up a new offense."
