Cards upset No. 15 Osky in five-set thriller
The Newton volleyball team has accumulated 19 wins this season. And, at last, one of those wins came in Little Hawkeye Conference play.
Trailing 1-2 in the set score, the Cardinals (19-10, 1-4) pulled off a narrow fourth-set victory before closing out conference-leading Oskaloosa in the fifth to earn a marathon 3-2 (25-18, 21-25, 23-25, 25-23, 15-13) victory for their first conference win Tuesday night.
"When we pass the ball well and we're aggressive, we're very good. When we tip it back and give it to them, we're awful," Newton coach Kim Florke said. "Our kids finally decided that's what they need to do to win. We lost focus a few times like we do, but I'm really proud of how they stuck with it and got it done."
