Whether it’s a double-digit win or a nail biting win, it still culminates into a win.
Woodward-Granger’s volleyball team gave their fans a taste of both when they beat out their West Central Activities foe from Ogden.
On the road at Ogden on Thursday night the Hawks (19-12, 6-2) finished off their final conference match of the season when they swept the host Bulldogs (10-11, 4-4).
In typical fashion the Hawks earned the conference victory but the task required some team fortitude as twice they were taken to the brink of extra matches.
The road team won the first set by five points, 25-20, and followed it up with a convincing 25-15 second set victory.
It would be a tough third set matchup when the Hawks found the Bulldogs gnawing at a chance at a fourth set, which eventually ended the visitors way in a close 26-24 victory.
A reason for the win could’ve come from the Hawks amassing a total number of kills -33, and digs - 55.
Senior Kaycee Major was responsible for 18 digs with fellow senior Ashley Gales recording 10 kills. Senior Julie Pitman had eight.
As she’s done the majority of the season, sophomore Emma Drake dominated the assist stat line with 27 of the team’s 33.
As a unit the Hawks finished 69-of-75 in serves for a 92 percent serve efficiency. They had 10 aces with Drake and junior Anna Tague each accounting with three. The Hawks tallied eight total blocks, Drake Gales and Pitman finished each with two.
