It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t always pretty, but the Lady Eagles survived another Saturday of volleyball to improve to 13-2 on the season.
In the first match of the day vs. Calvary Bible College (Kansas City, MO), Emmaus rode the volleyball rollercoaster, at times playing inspired and unbeatable, at times playing sluggish and error ridden. “We are continuing to work and learn about generating tempo and controlling momentum,” commented Coach Pitman. “Even though we had some very rough patches, I was very proud that we didn’t let it get us down and we fought hard to bounce back for the win.” The Lady Eagles closed out the win in their second fifth set match of the season (25-16, 20-25, 25-16, 18-25, 15-11).
The second match saw Emmaus play with more control and confidence as they defeated Grace Bible College (Grand Rapids, MI) 25-20, 25-21, 25-19. “Grace is a much improved team since our last meeting and they pushed us to stay in system and run our offense,” said Coach Pitman.
The Lady Eagles now look to the rest of what will be the toughest week of the season to date. The Lady Eagles hit the road tonight for a rematch with Faith Baptist (Ankeny, IA) and then make the trek to Northland International for a tournament this weekend.
