Hosting future conference foe Preble Shawnee, the Varsity volleyball team started out the match even with the visitors, trading good serves and attacks, with great defense on both sides. However, the Arrows managed to get to the finish first in set 1 at 20-25. After a good talk between sets, the Lady Hawks came out in set 2 with a little more energy, forcing Preble Shawnee to make some errors and getting the win at 25-18. In set 3, it was more of the same, going back and forth, with great plays and a few errors, but again, the visitors got to the finish at 21-25. Hoping to force a tie-breaker 5th set, MV tried hard to make a comeback after falling behind. But with a few too many errors and a strong attack from the opposite side, the Lady Hawks lost momentum and just couldn’t catch up, falling to the Arrows, 12-25.
