The Lady Jays got their homestand off to a winning start Saturday with a 3-0 triumph over Anoka-Ramsey squad. Game scores were 25-18, 25-18, 25-9.

Meanwhile, in men's soccer, Minnesota West will seek its first win of the season Wednesday when it takes on visiting Riverland Community College at 6 p.m. The two teams met earlier this season, with Riverland just getting by the Bluejays 2-0 on Sept. 27 in Austin. Minnesota West is 0-8 on the year.
