Theoretically, the Kenyon-Wanamingo volleyball team didn’t break much of a sweat in Thursday’s win.

Literally, the Class A No. 1 Knights (3-0, 1-0 Hiawatha Valley League) worked up a bit of a lather in a hot home gym en route to breezing past the Pine Island Panthers (0-5, 0-1 HVL) in a sweep by scores of 25-13, 25-5, 25-16.

The Knights were able to get everyone on the roster into the match as they continued a win streak in the series dating back to 2008.

Five points allowed in set two were the fewest by a K-W opponent this season.

After having nine days in between the last match, K-W has four to prepare for an anticipated 7:15 p.m. Tuesday matchup at Class AA No. 5 Kasson-Mantorville (3-0, 1-0 HVL). The KoMets swept Class AAA squads Rochester Century and Eastview, as well as HVL foe Lake City, which is among those receiving votes outside the AA top 10.

K-W is also hosting a ‘C’ and junior varsity tournament 9 a.m. Saturday.
