DIKE – The 1,000th career victory for Dike-New Hartford head coach Diane Harms was among the highlights for another successful week for D-NH volleyball in the home gym last week.

She’s in her 20th season of coaching with the Wolverines and started her head coaching career at Charles City. The Wolverines have made 15 state tournament appearances in that time and won eight state titles.

The Wolverines are once again ranked No. 1 in Class 2A this week. Osage is rated ninth in Class 3A, Dunkerton 14th in Class 1A, Humboldt 14th in Class 4A.
