Playing Dixie for the first time in match play, the Lady Hawks got a preview of one of their fellow new conference members for the 2021-2022 season. However, they had scrimmaged them previously and had an idea of what to expect. MV started out strong, serving up some aces and attacking smartly. They took the first set 25-15. The 2nd set had the teams neck and neck until Krista Miller came in to serve 15 in a row behind the big block duo of Taylor Stachler & Ellie Reichard, putting the Lady Hawks on top with a big margin and only a few points to go, where they finished at 25-11. The Greyhounds came back in set three with a few good serves and well placed hits, catching the Lady Hawks on their heels, taking the set at 15-25. MV decided it was time to get it done and despite the fight of the host team in the 4th set, outscored them 25-20 to end the match.
