by Joseph Schany
The Lady E-Hawks opened the season with a victory last Thursday, taking down Pocahontas Area 3-1 with scores of 23-25, 25-17, 25-16, and 25-8.
Emmetsburg would show a few nerves as they hit the court, falling behind early against Pocahontas to fall by two in the first set, 23-25.
“We had a few jitters to start the game,” said Lady E-Hawk Volleyball Head Coach Danielle Auten, “but we shook those off and played our game.”
The Emmetsburg netters would find their rhythm as the match continued, containing the Pocahontas offensive front to pull away with consecutive set wins.
“Our back row attacking was working really well for us,” said Auten. “We also had great passing from the back row.”
The Lady E-Hawk offense was led by senior Maddy Mueller, who racked up 12 kills against Pocahontas Area. Mueller also went 29 for 31 in serving and helped the girls pull away with some big leads.
