The Raiderettes traveled to Lenox on Tuesday where they were able to pick-up a Pride of Iowa win over the Tigers without the help of their best hitter, Addy Reynolds.
It was a tough contest for the Raiderettes after they took set one 25-22 before Lenox answered back with a 27-25 win.
The Raiderettes won 25-21 in set three to force a fourth set.
The Raiderettes rallied together with a 25-18 win to defeat the Tigers 3-1.
Without Reynolds, the Raiderettes saw Tabby Henle and Kacee Klommhaus step in to larger roles within the team.
Henle recorded one kill on one attempt, while also grabbing two digs while from behind the line she recorded 17-of-19 serves with one ace.
Klommhaus recorded six kills and one dig.
Hayden Ruggles recorded 23 assists for the Raiderettes along with two kills.
Thursday night, the R Raiderettes traveled to Creston to take on the 4A Panthers, again without the help of Reynolds, who hopes to make her way back onto the floor against Southwest Valley.
The Mount Ayr squad put up a fight in the first two sets, but ultimately fell in both before going into set three, still searching for a win.
The Raiderettes were neck and neck with the Panthers early in the third set before a momentum changing call changed the course of the set.
A kill attempt hit the fingers of a Panther at the net, with the ball landing out-of-bounds, however, the official called the point to Creston, with the line judge signaling a touch had occurred.
Mount Ayr coach Kristen Graham attempted to bring this to the attention of the main referee, in which he signaled with a yellow card.
After the second referee had a discussion with the line judge and confirmed that she did indeed signal a touch, the main referee held his call with the point to Creston.
The Raiderettes struggled throughout the rest of the game and ultimately fell to the Panthers 3-0.
The Raiderettes fell in set one 25-22 and set two 25-20. Set three saw the Raiderettes fall 25-11.
“We have so much adversity on this team, they fight until the very last minute, I am proud of them,” said coach Kristen Graham. “Our defense was so scrappy tonight. We dug a lot of balls. We just need to capitalize on our hits. I felt like we gave them a lot of pushes and some free balls that we should have hit and attacked the ball.”
On Monday, the Raiderettes traveled to Murray for a battle with a tough Mustang team.
The contest went five sets, going back and forth with Murray taking the first contest 25-23.

The fourth set went the distance and then some with Mount Ayr coming out on top 29-27.
In set five, it went the distance again, with Murray taking the set and game win, 15-13.
Murray won the game 3-2.
