Hinton volleyball cruised to a straight-set win in their regional semifinal over Central Lyon on Monday night.
It did not take long for Hinton to get into a rhythm on offense that would see them go on a run to score 18 of 20 points in a row. When the Blackhawks do that in a match, co-head coach Robin Mohr says they are tough to stop.
Gabbie Friessen was the one to get the party started with six kills in the first set alone and finishing with 11. Bailey Boeve ended up leading the Blackhawks for the night with 12, but Coach Mohr says it is important to have all hitters get going when the attention may be on Boeve.
Hinton’s serving is just another way they twist the knife into their opponents. The Blackhawks served up 10 aces with just two serving errors on the night. Sayler Jauer had a pair of aces while successfully serving all 19 of her attempts on the night. Coach Mohr says she has been a strong addition to the serving rotation.
The Blackhawks improve to 29-1 with the win and now advance to Wednesday night’s regional final. The Blackhawks have been able to easily dispose of their opponents in the tournament, but Coach Mohr says they can not view anyone as easy. He says they have to treat every opponent with respect, and the girls have done that.
Hinton will take on Rock Valley in the regional final on Wednesday night in a match played at Le Mars Community High School. KLEM will broadcast the match live starting at 6:45 PM.
