Despite extra points in the third set, the Eagles volleyball team completed a sweep of Grinnell in conference action yesterday.

Pella Christian won the first set in a snug 25-23 set, blew the gates off of the Tigers in the second 25-12, and fought hard to win the final set 28-26.

Emma Dunsbergen had six of the team’s 12 blocks, and senior Danielle Vande Voort had perhaps her strongest offensive night of the year, with 10 kills to just one error.

The Eagles improve to 9-11 and aim to collect multiple wins Saturday morning at their home tournament.
