Huskies VB “Serves Up” Another Victory

On Tuesday September 25, the North Lakes Academy Huskies Volleyball team travelled to Calvin Christian in Fridley for a Eastern Minnesota Athletic Conference (EMAC)  battle.  The Huskies, who have been on a strong serving roll, continued that on Tuesday night with another strong performance of 19 total team service aces.

The first game both teams played very well, with Calvin Christian holding on to a 1 or 2 point lead for most of the set.  Late in the set, trailing 20-22, the Huskies got control of the serve after a serving error by Calvin Christian.  Junior Autumn Percy was the next to serve and served out the final five points of the set along with two service aces to give the Huskies a 25-22 set win.

Sets two and three were split between the two teams with Calvin Christian winning the second set 20-25 and North Lakes Academy winning the third set 25-23. During these two sets the Huskies served up another 8 service aces.
