The WaMaC East Division is going to be tough this season after the departures of Anamosa and Western Dubuque and the addition of WaMaC West Division conference runner-up 4A Marion. It is sure to make for some great competition! Here is a recap of last year’s leaders in the conference.

Mount Vernon (7-0, 26-11)

Coached by Maggie Willems, the Mustangs were the undefeated WaMaC East Division champions last season and were ranked 4th in 3A. They ended their season with a hard fought 3A Regional Final loss to Iowa Falls-Alden in 5 sets. Mount Vernon returns a talented team even after graduating some key players including OH Catherine Yeoman, S/RH Bailey Sullivan, and DS Grace Pettinger.

The Mustangs will be led at the net by 1st Team All-Conference selection Rory Light who had 298 kills and 95 blocks last season. She’ll be helped out by fellow senior Annie Rhomberg and sophomore Natalie Welch. Another senior this year, setter Ella Brase, returns after posting 448 assist and 108 kills for Mount Vernon.  

Dyersville Beckman (6-1, 31-13)

Ranked 9th in 3A last season, the Blazers came in 2nd in the WaMaC Conference East Division with coach Todd Troutman at the helm.
