Lady Eagles were flying high as they had just won two straight despite being down starting setter Bethany Scheer. Although Emmaus had won the previous matchup against Dayspring (3-1) this would be a completely different ball game. Set 1 both teams came out swinging as rallies were long and bodies were flying. Both teams knew they could not afford to trade points but it wasn’t until the 20’s that this cycle stopped. Score was 22-22 and the game was up for grabs. However, Dayspring won three straight taking the first set. It wasn’t until these final two sets of the weekend that it truly looked like a team with a new setter. Balls were hitting the floor in between players, good decisions were not being made, and it just looked like they didn’t have the same confidence as before. “It was as if the “injury adrenaline” was gone and we all lost the fight for each other. Trust is a HUGE part of volleyball and we all doubted one another towards the end of the match, “Coach Strautmann noted. Dayspring would go on to win 3-0 looking much better in the rematch (17-25, 18-25). Overall this was a successful weekend for both these teams but Emmaus had a few more questions to answer to prepare for the last couple matches and then nationals.
