The Hettinger-Scranton Nighthawk volleyball teams swept old nemesis Beulah on September 10. Beulah has traditionally had a strong volleyball team. Last year they were in the region finals but Hazen knocked them out of going to the state tournament.
But it was all Nighthawks this time.
The Nighthawk “C” team won their match 2-0 with scores of 27-25 and 25-20. The first set was the closest set of the evening as Anna Kludt had the winning point serve to put the game away.
Kaitlin Jahner and Skylynne Cummings had a good night with their serving. The Junior Varsity also won their match 2-0 by scores of 25-10 and 25-20.
The varsity came out hustling and working well together as a team and won 3-0. They took the first set handily 25-14. They followed that with 25-21 and 25-17 scores. At one point in the second set the Nighthawks were down 14-9 but fought back to pull out the win. Lizzy Thompson led in kills with
nine followed by Katelyn Turner, Madison Warbis and Brianna Robinson with five each. Robinson also had five blocks while Kayla Chadwick totaled 13 digs. Taylor Burwick did an outstanding job in setting up the hitters and came away with 24 assists.
