It took Renville County West a game and a half to score a point off a serve.
They lost 25-7 in the first game as Minneota's Katelyn Kack served 11 straight points.
The Jaguars got going and gave Minneota a run in the second game before losing, 25-18 and hung in there long enough to lose 25-21 in the final game.
For the Vikings it was their eighth straight win and drove their record to 19-2.
They may meet RCW again in the North-South Camden Conference game on Oct. 18.
Dominating the first game was Ashlynn Muhl with six kills and two blocks. She ended the game with 14 kills to lead the Vikings.
The win was the final home game of the year and wrapped up at least a tie for the Camden Conference crown. They can win it outright with a victory at Lakeview Thursday night.
Minneota plays Friday evening in the Apple Valley October Classic. They face Burnsville in the first game, then play either Minneapolis Southwest or Byron.
Other teams are: Apple Valley; Legacy Christian Academy (formerly Meadow Brook Christian School); Mounds View, Delano, Owatonna, Clayton, WI; Jordan, Wabasha-Kellogg; Rosemount; Osseo and Kasson-Mantorville.
They also play on Saturday.
