Emmetsburg took its game to a higher level in its three-set road victory over Graettinger-Terril Thursday.

The E-Hawks fell behind once during the first set but righted course, pulling out to an 18-14 lead. Gretchen Hofstad used some of her nine-for-nine service game to keep the Titans floundering. After taking the lead, Emmetsburg never looked back, claiming the first set, 25-17.

The E-Hawks' tenacity defined the match. Emmetsburg pounced on every ball, chased down every net rebound and played position volleyball at its finest.

In set two, the Titans called timeout after falling behind 15-9. Freshman Raegan Swanson was the Terminator, landing serve after serve en route to a 16-for-16 service game. Macy McAllister went 15 for 15 and Abbie Schany was 12 for 12 in her serves. Emmetsburg was 70 for 74 for the match in serves. The E-Hawks cruised to a second-set victory, 25-13.

Graettinger-Terril had no answers for Emmetsburg's relentless serving and its impeccable net play. In the third set, the E-Hawks jumped out to a 13-5 lead, forcing the Titans to call an early timeout. Emmetsburg doubled the score at 16-8 and the match was a fait accompli. Hofstad ended the set with a thunderous spike, giving the E-Hawks the set, 25-12, and the match.

Molly Schany delivered the goods, with 35 attack attempts and 12 kills. Savannah Wolf continued her serving clinic, dialing in 12 for 13. McAllister dished out 18 assists. In addition to her service game, Hofstad had 13 digs.

Morgan Jamison's stats do not fly off the page, but she was omnipresent during the match and harassed the Titans' offense with her unforgiving defense.
