In top 10 volleyball battle, Rose Hill sweeps Garden Plain

By  | 

The dream of an unbeaten season is over.

Garden Plain, who jumped out to a 9-0 start on the year and quickly earned the top ranking in all of class 2A, didn't have enough to withstand the Rose Hill buzzsaw.

In the first set, Garden Plain set the tone early, jumping out to a 7-4 lead. But then the Rockets went on a tear, ripping off eight straight points with all-stater Gracie Van Driel on the serve.

The Rockets didn't look back from there, taking set one 25-17.

The second set ended a bit tougher, with Garden Plain cutting the Rocket lead to as close as 22-18 late, but that's as close as the Owls would get. Rose Hill took the second set 25-19 to complete the sweep.
