Avenging their 3-1 loss against Wakeland earlier in the season, the Redhawks volleyball team took down the Wolverines 3-2 on Tuesday at The Nest, racking up their ninth win in a row.

Although the Redhawks fell to the Wolverines 18-25 in the first set, they rallied back for the second game to tie the match 1-1 (21-25). Back and forth the match went as Wakeland took a 2-1 lead (22-25), though it wasn’t enough, as the Redhawks came out on top in the last two sets (25-16,15-11), resulting in a 3-2 final.

“We killed it during the fourth set,” junior Jenna Wenaas said via text. “Once we got on a roll, we kept pushing points and never looked back which was awesome, and made life easy at the end of the set, and boosted confidence in the fifth set.”

Leading the team with 23 kills, Wenaas believes her and her teammates gave it their all for the entire game.

“I thought [the] game was awesome, and we fought really hard the whole game,” Wenaas said via text. “I was super impressed with our ability to outlast a team in the fifth set for two games in a row.”
