“I was searching around for scouting reports before this game and I got an email back from one of the coaches,” Jantzi said. “They were a rival school and she wished us good luck, but she also said, “I love when your kids play.
“That to me is just the greatest thing to hear about my team,” Jantzi continued. “There are so many layers to what she said.”
McKenna Hage also contributed three blocks and eight kills for the Hawkeyes, who end their season as Center State Conference Division II champions and with a 13-4 record.
“We had a great season overall, nothing to hang our heads about,” said Jantzi.
