Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)--The smallest team in the 1A state volleyball field has made the biggest noise in the tournament. 

Janesville, the smallest team in this year's state tournament field and playing in its first ever state tournament contest in any team sport, rallied from a two-sets-to-none deficit to stun second-ranked Alta, 23-25, 22-25, 25-21, 25-22, 15-10. 

The Wildcats (25-8) will face Stanton in the Class 1A semifinals Friday night at 7:30. 

Olivia Fisher knocked down 30 kills with six service aces and 17 digs to pace Janesville, while Karli Kruse recorded 16 kills.
