    The meet will start at 3:30 p.m.

  • Sports Calendar: October 21

    There's a busy slate of volleyball matches on the calendar for Tuesday. However, only one match is not part of the regional volleyball tournament.

    That match is the last regular season one for Red Oak as they host Creston as part of senior night. The varsity match is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start. 

    Regardless of outcome, Red Oak will finish second in the Hawkeye 10 standings. The two teams previously faced off at the Red Oak Tournament last month. The Tigers won 2-1.
