Head volleyball coach Amanda Schultze on what worked well for her team tonight: 

“We did a much better job at passing the ball tonight,” Schultze said. “We bettered the out of system balls, which is something we worked on a lot last week. We got our middles and right sides going right away.” 

Schultze on what she wants the focus to be heading into the weekend slate: 

“I’m hoping we can continue taking what we learn in practice over into the games,” Schultze said. 


The Hawks will make a trip to play Central Community College for the second time this year in a game beginning at 6 p.m. Friday in Columbus, Nebraska.
