Volleyball rankings: Ankeny grabs No. 1 spot from Bettendorf

By

Ankeny’s championship run in Saturday’s Bettendorf Invitational created a major flip flop in the state volleyball rankings.
The Hawkettes expected to do a little rebuilding after the program was split with Centennial this fall. But Ankeny (31-2) has won 21 straight matches, including a 2-0 victory against Bettendorf Saturday. The result — No. 1 Bettendorf and No. 2 Ankeny switched places at the top of the Class 5-A rankings.
Harlan (26-3) remained atop 4-A and MOC-FV of Orange City (23-5) retained the 3-A crown.
Class 2-A Dike-New Hartford (34-1) and 1-A leader Fort Madison Holy Trinity (37-4) earned the final No. 1 rankings of the season in their classes.
