Ironwood Ridge improved to 5-0 on the year after beating Rincon/University 3-1 (25-21, 17-25, 25-13, 25-22) Tuesday night at home. With the win, head coach Bill Lang joined Juanita Kingston and Sandy Novak in the 400-win club for girls’ volleyball from Southern Arizona.

Kingston led the Rincon/UHS girls to a state championship in 1993 and she still holds the record for Southern Arizona at 455 wins. Novak led Sahuaro to 402 wins before concentrating solely on the boy’s program at the school. Kingston retired in 2008 and Novak will retire this spring….
