“Observe, Interpret, APPLY!” This was the new battle cry of the Emmaus crowd led by students John Walker and Caleb Ruter.
Emmaus had played Grace earlier this year losing in four so they were ready for round 2. Katie Koppen would be setting once again as the injured Bethany Scheer supported from the sideline. Set 1 could not have been played tighter as it was neck in neck the entire set. Both teams were making great plays and covering the court well as the set looked to be coming to an end with an Emmaus lead 24-23. However, Grace would not go away as they brought the score back to 26-26 with it being anybody’s game. Between a couple good serves and solid hitting Emmaus won an intense set 28-26. There was little time to celebrate as set 2 was quickly under way with Emmaus taking a strong early lead of 5-0. After a Grace Timeout they seemed to be right back into it bringing the game close once again. It wasn’t until the end of the match one team seized control as Emmaus won 25-21. Game 3 was just as close as the previous sets but Grace seemed to run out of steam as energized Emmaus ran away with it at the end (25-18).
“This was a huge night not only for the seniors but the whole team as Nationals were just around the corner. These girls are playing their best volleyball right now; very fun to watch," remarked Coach Strautmann.
