Red Wing collected its first Big Nine Conference win of the season on Tuesday after knocking off Mankato East in three sets at Sonju Gymnasium, 25-21, 25-19, 25-15.

Madisyn Lyons was the team leader in kills (12), digs (14) and ace blocks (three), and Abi Deming was a force at the net with six ace blocks to go with four kills. Kate Sonju added six kills, Elle Thorson had four blocks, and Vanessa Frazier came up with 10 digs. Macy Koester pushed the ball around to the tune of 28 digs in the Wingers' victory.
