The Washington Demons got their final regular season win after beating Ft. Madison 3-1.

Washington lost the first set 25-21, but came back and won the next three 25-18, 25-20 and 25-19.

In set three the Demons served five net serves, but came back with a sideout right after four out of the five times.

Sam Ellingson had 14 kills and 26 digs, while Stephanie Fishback had 16 kills and 20 digs and three aces while going 20-20 from the serve line. Beth Dillon had 11 kills and 18 digs, and both Maddie Collins and Lauren Swan had 14 digs.

Lauren Kimball had the hands with 42 assists.

After the game head coach Jeff Spenner said he thought this was one of, if not the best game he saw his girls play, and that 40 plus assists show that the offense was working.

“Outside the first game were we had a few things with our serving and our passing a little bit, but I thought we cleaned those things up, and it showed with our hitting,” Spenner said. “When you can have 40 some assists with your offense, it shows that you are running your offense, it means we’re passing well, and it means we’re getting the attempts and kills, and that make a big different. They came our to play.”

Spenner also announced that this was his final regular season game as head coach, and that he would be retiring after the tournament.

The Demons travel to Clear Creek Amana on Monday for the first round of the 4A tournament.
