South Wasco County posted its third league sweep of the season, second straight, over the Ione Cardinals in Big Sky Conference volleyball action Tuesday in Ione.
The Redsides overcame some early struggles in the opening game to get the 27-25 win to take a 1-0 lead and had another nip and tuck battle in the second game before pulling away for a 25-22 win.
In the third game, the Redsides coasted to a 25-12 victory.
Tuesday’s win kept SWC within a half a game of first-place Echo ahead of Saturday’s critical matchup in Maupin.
Following that match, the Redsides are in Fossil at 5 p.m. Tuesday versus Condon-Wheeler, and then they host the Sherman Huskies at 5 p.m. Thursday.
