Marquette hosted Calamus Wheatland last Tuesday for its final home game of the year. A battle from the first whistle, Marquette and Cal-Wheat traded points never, straying from much more than 4 points through the first two sets.
However, the experience of Cal-Wheat gave them the edge as they won set 1: 25-22, and set 2: 25-21. The third set saw the young Mohawks lose heart at the start, digging themselves into a 9-19 hole. But they did not quit. Through a combination of aggressive serving, flawless passing, and almost no errors hitting, Marquette stormed back, rising to their fullest potential, and winning the set 27-25. Set four similarly saw a back and forth match, before some late aggressive swings saw Cal-Wheat take the set and the match 25-17.
Final Score: Cal-Wheat defeats Marquette 22-25, 21-25, 27-25, 17-25
