WHEN WE HAD A CHANCE TO VISIT WITH THE TEAM YESTERDAY, THEY’RE A PRETTY CLOSE KNIT BUNCH. VEERBEEK GETS THIS ONE DOWN >>GOOD TO KNOW. THEY’VE GROWN UP TOGETHER, PLAYED BALL TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME AND BOTH TEAMS REALLY A CLOSE KNIT TEAM. BUT DYKE NEW HARTFORD’S AMAZING. THEY’VE ONLY COME TO THE 5A SCHOOL THIS YEAR. TWO TO THE CHAMPION AND ONE TO LISTENMARK. SO PRETTY TOUGH TO DO >>CARLEE DOVE GETS THAT POINT. 7 -5. DYKE NEW HARTFORD. AND REALLY THE TWO PROGRAMS HAVE SUCH A GOOD HISTORY AGAINST ONE ANOTHER.

AND DYKE NEW HARTFORD MATCHES THEIR LARGEST LEAD OF THE SET. WHICH THEY JUMPED OUT TO A 3 -0 LEAD. IT WAS TIED A COUPLE OF TIMES, AND NOW THEY’RE SHOWING THEIR STRENGTH AT THE STRETCH, LEADING 5 OF THE LAST 7 POINTS >>THEY USUALLY GO TO THE MIDDLE WITH THEIR STRENGTH.>>REALLY KNOWN FOR HER DEFENSE. IN FACT, HAD 300 DIGS DURING THE REGULAR SEASON. THIS ONE IS AN ACE >>THAT WAS ONE OF THE BALLS THAT LOOKED OUT AND JUST DROPPED. THE THING ABOUT PLAYING IN A BIG ARENA LIKE THAT, YOU GET A LOT OF DIFFERENT BALL MOVEMENT WITH THE AIR DRAFT MOVEMENT IN THE GYM, AND THAT JUST TOOK A NOSE DIVE RIGHT ON THE END >>ONE FOR ONE THERE >>2 -POINT ADVANTAGE FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD AND NOW BACK TO SERVE IS SYDNEY PETERSEN. OF COURSE, HER TWIN SISTER IS BAYLEE, BUT SYDNEY GOING ON TO PLAY COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL AT TEXAS. AND WHAT A RECRUIT THEY LANDED, THE LONGHORNS >>RIGHT. SHE’S ONE OF THE TOP IN THE STATE, THE COUNTRY, ACTUALLY. AND SHE GETS A CHANCE TO PLAY IN THE FINAL FOUR. CHECK THE POWER. SHE’LL BE HEADING SOUTH. SHE’LL PROBABLY LIKE THE WINNERS OUT THERE A LITTLE BETTER. >>HAD TO BE. SHE SAID IT REALLY WASN’T AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION WITH HER MOM. SHE SAID IT WAS JUST RATHER DIRECT. NOT LIKE MOST KIDS WOULD HAVE SLID IN THE FACT THAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE LEAVING HOME DURING BREAKFAST, MAYBE, AND I’LL TAKE SOME CHEERIOS AND GO TO TEXAS AND GOOD MORNING TO YOU. GOING THAT WAY >>DIFFERENT KIND OF KIDS, BUT SHE’S GOT SOME GOOD OFFERS IN TEXAS. BUT BAYLEE’S GOING TO STAY HOME AND GO PLAY FOR THE PANTHERS >>11 -9, OUR SCORE. HEDGES, RUNS A SLIDE >>NICE COVERAGE THERE. AND A DOUBLE HIT. IT’S GOT TO BE A CLEAN HIT WITH BOTH HANDS. YOU CAN’T HAVE ONE HADN’T MORE THAN THE OTHER. IT SLIPPED OUT OF HER FINGERS THERE, SORT OF AN UNFORCED ERROR THERE FOR THE WOLF PACK >>DYKE NEW HARTFORD HERE AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT HAS BEEN TEAM ROLLING THEIR COMPETITION. IN ALL 6 SETS THEY’VE WON BY A 150 -63 MARGIN >>YEAH, THEY JUST DOMINATED YESTERDAY IN THE SEMIFINALS >>WESTERN CHISTENSEN, 3 -0 BUT NOT QUITE NEAR THAT DOMINATION >>TOOK CARE OF ST. ALBERT IN 58 MINUTE. AND THEY GET THE POINT HERE AT THE NET FOR THE LARGEST LEAD HERE AT 4 >>HERE WE SEE WHERE ASHT Y N IS UP THERE, 6 -2. MISTIMED HER JUMP. DIDN’T GET OVER FAR ENOUGH. SHE’S REALLY GOT TO CONTROL THE NET WHEN SHE GETS THE OPPORTUNITY >>WEBER TO HEDGES. AND RICKERT GOES LONG. TIMEOUT WESTERN CHISTENSEN >>THAT WASN’T THE BEST TRANSITION FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD. THEY WERE OUT OF TRANSITION AND WEREN’T ABLE TO KEEP THE BALL IN>>50 -50 BALL >>TIGHT PASSES ARE REALLY TOUGH TO HANDLE >>POINT GETS ALIVE AND REPORTED ACROSS. THERE’S WHERE YOU SEE THE ATHLETICISM OUT OF SYDNEY PETERSEN >>IT GOES OUT.>>ANOTHER KEY THAT DYKE NEW HARTFORD IS DOING, MEZZING UP THEIR ATTACK. AND IT’S A QUICK ATTACK A QUICK FACT SET AND BLOCK IS LATE GETTING THERE. NICE KILL. AMBER RICKERT DOING SOME DAMAGE UP THERE.>>WEBER FROM THE BACK TO HEDGES AND THEY GO RIGHT AS A BLOCK BACK BY VEERBEEK >>BIG BIG BIG BLOCK UP THERE. AND AGAIN, THE RUNNING QUICK AND THAT KIND OF JUMP PERFECTLY AND THE COVERAGE FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD NOT QUITE THERE TO PICK UP THE BALL. ONE THING. THEY PLAY ABOUT 9 PLAYERS EVERY SET. THEY DO A MODIFIED 6 -2, A LOT OF ROTATIONS, SO YOU GET A LOT OF PLAYERS ON THE COURT. THEY’VE GOT TIME TO REST ON THE BENCH. WHERE DYKE’S PLAY IS USUALLY 7 PLAYERS ALL THE WAY AROUND SO A PRETTY SET LINE-UP FOR THEM >>BOTH TEAMS TOLD US THEY WOULD HAVE A LITTLE JITTERS COMING INTO THIS GAME. I HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET. HAVE YOU?>>NO, THEY’RE PLAYING PRETTY TOUGH OUT THERE >>PLAYING ALL OUT.>>THEY’RE FAMILIAR, FOR SURE >>AND HOW ABOUT THE BLOCK THAT TIME BY JESSI DE JAGER >>DE JAGER HAD QUITE A DAY YESTERDAY. 15 KILLS IN THE WIND. DEVASTATING >>YOU KNOW, AND YOU WOULDN’T KNOW IT. SHE IS ONLY 5 -7. 5 -7 IS NOT A BIG PLAYER IN THE CURRENT DAY AND AGE FOR VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS. SHE GETS UP AND GETS ON TOP OF THE GOAL >>A LOT OF TIME WITH THE JUMP ROPE. HEDGES TO THE OUTSIDE. THAT’S WEBER.>>NOW WITH PETERSEN IN THE BACK ROW, THEY GO TO THE OUTSIDE TO WEBER. SHE’S THEIR NUMBER TWO HITTER, 441 KILLS ON THE AIR, JUST BEHIND PETERSEN. SO THEY RUN TO THE OUTSIDE >>BOTH STARTING TO SLIP AWAY FROM WESTERN CHISTENSEN AND THE WOLF PACK. TAKE A TIMEOUT. LET’S GO TO THEIR HUDDLE >>I GET IT. BUT IF SHE’S NOT IN THE MIDDLE, WHY, SHE SHOULD NOT TOUCH THE BALL. YOU HAVE HALF THE COURT TO GET IT ON THAT SIDE, CORRECT?? OKAY.>>SHE’S TOO GOOD. WE HAVE TO GET IT AWAY FROM HER. IF WE HAVE TO TIP, TIP TO THE TOP. WE HAVE TO KEEP BREATHING. STAY BACK. YOU HAVEN’T. AND GET THAT WEIGHT FORWARD. DON’T GET CAUGHT GOING BACKWARDS. LET’S GO. STAY AGGRESSIVE. STAY AGGRESSIVE. TEAM, 1, 2, 3, TEAM.>>THEY’RE NOT GETTING BACK TO BASE POSITION. THEY’RE NOT MOVING TOWARD THE ATTACKER. YOU WANT YOUR WEIGHT FORWARD TO MOVE ANY DIRECTION TO PICK UP THAT BALL. WE’LL SEE IF THAT TIMEOUT CAN SLAP THE MOMENTUM THAT DYKE NEW HARTFORD HAS ON A ROLE.>>BLOCK BUT IT’S HANDLED AND CALLED FOR THE DOUBLE HIT. DE JAGER, EXCUSE ME.>>DYKE DOES HAVE HEIGHT IN THE MIDDLE. 6 -1 CARLEE DOVE UP THERE DOING A GOOD JOB AGAINST THE HEIGHT OF WESTERN CHRISTIAN >>NICE VIEW OF THE COURT HERE >>PETERSEN FROM THE BACK ROW ON THAT — KICKED IT IN >>BEAUTIFUL. SHE’S TRULY SMART, JUST LIKE HER MAMMA. COACHED AGAINST HER MAMMA BACK WHEN SHE PLAYED AT UNI. KIND OF A FAMILY TRADITION THERE. GREAT VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS. PETERSEN AND NOW HER DAUGHTER FINALLY GETTING THAT TRADITION >>SO WE’RE BACK TO SERVE HERE AGAIN. OF COURSE, MOM WATCHING FROM THE ROAD. UNI IN ACTION TONIGHT ON THE ROAD. WEEKEND TOURNAMENT AS THEY TRY TO WIND OUT THE REGULAR SEASON. AND COMING RIGHT BACK, WESTERN CHRISTIAN GETS ON THE BOARD. AGAIN, DE JAGER, PUTTING A GOOD PASS THERE FROM TORI WYNJA.>>SHE’S 274 IN THE SEASON. THE KEY THINGS FOR HER AND — TO HAVE BIG GAMES TONIGHT >>NOW SKIMPER. HEDGES OVER TO THE SIDE. THEY ROLE WITH IT, AND CARLEE DOVE >>AGAIN, WITH THAT PASS, A LOT OF OPTIONS WITH THE OFFENSE. GREAT JOB FROM HEDGES ON THE OFFENSE. RUNNING THAT QUICK ATTACK WITH A LOT OF SPREADING THE PHONE OUT THROUGHOUT THE NET, MAKING THOSE LOGGERS MOVE. ANOTHER PERFECT PASS >>AND THIS ENDED THE MIDDLE AND RICKERT. SHE’S HAD QUITE A FIRST GAME HERE. 6 KILLS NOW >>BEAUTIFUL PASS. ONE THING YOU’LL NOTICE WITH DYKE NEW HARTFORD. THEY DON’T PASS A SLOW, EASY PASS. THEY SHOOT THAT BALL UP TO THE CENTER. THAT IS SUCH A — THAT WAS THE OPPOSITE THAT IOWA. YOU RUN A QUICK, QUICK OFFENSE. JUST GOT TO GO QUICK. MAKE THOSE DEFENSIVE PLAYERS WORK >>THAT POINT WILL HAVE TO WAIT A LITTLE BIT AS DE JAGER COMES UP WITH ANOTHER KILL. HER GOAL IS TO LEAD ALL WESTERN CHRISTIAN PLAYERS. STILL A 9 -POINT DEFICIT. AND THAT WILL END THE FIRST HALF>>PRETTY CONVINCING FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD. WESTERN CHRISTIAN WILL HAVE TO COME BACK STRONG IN THE SECOND SET >>25 -15 THE FINAL HERE IN THE FIRST SET.

WOLVERINES JUST TOOK OVER. THEIR SIDES IN THE MIDDLE. RICKERT WITH A BIG FIRST SET, WITH 6 KILLS. BAYLEE PETERSEN WITH 5. MORGAN WEBER WITH 4. AND THEY REALLY SPREAD THE BALL AROUND QUITE A BIT AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ROAD TO THE FINAL.>>THEY SPREAD IT OUT QUITE A BIT, NOT RELYING ON ONE PLAYER. RUNNING A VERY FAST ATTACK, WHICH IS A CRITICAL THING FOR THEM TO BEAT WESTERN CHRISTIAN >>WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT TOO, DYKE NEW HARTFORD HEADING BETTER THAN 417 AND JUST 147 FROM WESTERN CHRISTIAN. THAT’S NOT TYPICAL NUMBERS FOR THE WOLF PACK >>RIGHT. AND 20 TOTAL DIG. A LOT OF THOSE FROM SYDNEY PETERSEN WHO REALLY SET THE OFFENSE UP FOR HEDGES TO REALLY RUN A GREAT OFFENSE. HOPEFULLY, WESTERN CHRISTIAN WILL GET BACK IN THIS. THEY HUNG TIGHT EARLY ON. THEY JUST NEED TO KEEP THAT MOMENTUM AND AT LEAST KEEP IT COMPETITIVE >>LET’S GO TO THE SECOND SET HERE AS WE’LL GET THINGS STARTED WITH DYKE NEW HARTFORD, OPENING UP WITH A SERVE. AND IT WILL BE SYDNEY PETERSEN, 51 ACES THIS YEAR AND 14 DIGS. HUGE GIG AGAINST DOWNTOWN WEST ST. ALBERT THE OTHER NIGHT AND READY TO SERVE IT UP HERE. AND DE JAGER GETS WESTERN CHRISTIAN OUT ON THE BOARD FIRST>>AND THAT WAS AGAIN LOOK FOR A BEAUTIFUL PASS THERE AND A NICE MIXUP WITH THE BACK SET AND A BLOCK A LITTLE LATE GETTING THERE. BEAUTIFUL ATTACK BY DE JAGER >>FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD IT’S BEEN A VERY LONG TIME SINCE THEY’VE LOST A SET, ACTUALLY. AND THEN YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TO WHEN THEY PLAYED COLUMBUS CATHOLIC IN THEIR CONFERENCE AND WON AT 3 -1. THAT’S HOW DOMINATING THEY’VE BEEN.>>YEAH, I GUESS THE BIGGEST THING IS THEIR BALL CONTROL. THEY’RE SO SOUND FUNDAMENTALLY WITH BALL CONTROL, RUNNING THAT QUICK OFFENSE AND UP LIKE THAT >>IT’S BEEN 13 MATCHES SINCE THEY’VE LOST A SET. AND THE WOLF PACK JUMPS OUT TO A 2 -1 LEAGUE >>A LITTLE OFF TIMING IN THERE, BUT HER POWER WAS ABLE TO GET IT OVER THE NET. SO FAR, SO GOOD FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN >>HERE’S TORI WYNJA. DID NOT GET AN OVATION ON THAT SERVE >>THOSE ARE JUST MENTAL ERRORS. THE TOSS WAS LOW. SHE COULD HAVE LEFT THE BALL DROP AND RETOSS, BUT WE’VE GOT TO MAKE SMART DECISIONS AT THIS LEVEL, PLAYING FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP.>>PETERSEN JUST OFF THE COURT.>>THE CENTER TOOK THE FIRST HIT ON WESTERN CHRISTIAN SO THEY PUSHED IT OVER ON THE SECOND BALL >>NOW THEY COME BACK AND THE BLOCK BACK VEERBEEK HAD THAT ONE PUSHED BACK. THIS ONE IS SAFE IN. WHAT A TERRIFIC PLAY. AND PETERSEN WILL GET THIS ONE DOWN. THEY’RE ATTACKING THAT FAR BACK CORNER OF DYKE NEW HARTFORD >>THAT WAS A TOUGH SCRAMBLE FOR THE DEFENSE TO GET BACK AND PETERSEN KNEW THAT CORNER WAS GOING TO BE OPEN. NICE LINE DEEP SHOT THERE WITH THE POWER HIT >>AND A SERVER PRAYER BY DYKE NEW HARTFORD >>A LITTLE UNCHARACTERISTIC THERE >>MADISON HOFMAN WILL NOW COME IN TO SERVE. HER FIRST ACTION HERE IN THE SECOND SET.>>HER MOM PLAYED HERE A FEW YEARS AGO. VEERBEEK ALSO PLAYED HERE. SO THREE OF THESE PLAYERS HAVE HAD MOMS IN THIS PROGRAM HERE BACK IN THE EARLY 90S >>AND EACH ONE OF THEM — AND WE’VE HEARD IT FROM A LOT OF MOMS WHO HAVE DAUGHTERS PLAYING HERE IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT. MY, HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED, YOU KNOW, FROM THE EXPOSURE THAT THEY’RE GETTING, BUT ALSO JUST FROM THE FANFARE. I MEAN, IT IS A HOT TICKET HERE IN CEDAR RAPIDS >>EXACTLY. FULL HOUSE EVERY NIGHT AND GREAT VENUE HERE, PLUS ALL THE COVERAGE ON FACEBOOK LIVE AND YouTube AND IOWA PUBLIC TELEVISION. THE COVERAGE HAS BEEN GREAT FOR THE IOWA GIRL HERE FOR THE GIRLS VOLLEYBALL PROGRAM IN THIS STATE.>>AMY VAN KLEY WITH THE SERVE. PUT BACK UP BY WYNJA. AND GETS THE POWER DOWN BY CARLEE DOVE >>WE TALKED ABOUT THE TRANSITION FROM DEFENSE TO OFFENSE. NOBODY DOES THIS BETTER THAN DYKE NEW HARTFORD.

FREE BALL HERE FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD. HEDGES TO DOVE. DE JAGER WITH THE BLAST. NOW PETERSEN >>GREAT RALLY >>OH, NOBODY HOME FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN. THE WOLVERINES HAVE JUST BEAT THEM BACK TO THAT BACK LINE >>THE CENTER KIND OF GOT STUCK BEHIND THE MIDDLE HITTER AND WASN’T ABLE TO GET THERE. THAT’S A TOUGH BREAK FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN >>DOUBLE HIT. KIND OF A TOUGH PASS TO HANDLE WHEN YOU’RE RUNNING OUT SIDEWAYS AND TRYING TO GET YOUR SHOULDERS TO TURN AND PUSH THE BALL TO THE OUTSIDE. A LITTLE MORE ADVANCED SKILL.>>AND THIS ONE BLOCKS BACK IN THE MIDDLE, DOVE IN ON THE ACTION AS DE JAGER TRIED TO HAMMER THAT ONE HOME. TAKE A LOOK AT IT HERE >>AND A GREAT BLOCK THERE. ACCORDING THAT’S THE ONLY OPTION SHE HAD TO GO AND DOUBLE BLOCK OUT THERE. BUT IT HITS SMARTER THAN THAT >>WESTERN CHRISTIAN WILL BURN THE FIRST TIMEOUT HERE OF THE SECOND SET. LET’S GO TO THE DYKE BENCH >>OKAY.>>DON’T FOLD OUT UNTIL YOU GUYS HAVE IT. SO OUT AND PRESS IN, OKAY.>>SO WHEN YOU’RE HITTING THAT CROSS COURT, JUST MOVE IT A LITTLE TO THE LEFT OR TO THE MIDDLE, NOT RIGHT AT HER. STAY AGGRESSIVE. KEEP TALKING. EXPECT A SEE OR PUSH OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT COMING. MAKE SURE YOU’RE TALKING, READY FOR IT >>REALLY JUST TRYING TO GIVE THEM SOME ADVICE ON THEIR BLOCK. THEY’RE REALLY GOING TO HAVE TO TRY AND OVERCOME THE HEIGHT ADVANTAGE. SHE TALKED ABOUT NOT FLOATING. FLOATING IS WHEN YOU’RE JUMPING AND FLOATING OUT TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT. THE BLOCK GOES STRAIGHT UP AND JUST ADJUST THE BLOCK BEFORE YOU JUMP. BUT OVERALL, THERE’S REALLY NOTHING TO COACH. THEY’VE BEEN PASSING WELL, SERVING WELL, AND TAKING CONTROL HERE IN SET 2 >>10 -5, DYKE NEW HARTFORD ABLE TO DOUBLE UP WESTERN CHRISTIAN AND PETERSEN AGAIN WITH THE SERVE. TRYING TO GO WITH THE CHANGE-UP THAT TIME AND IT HITS THE TOP OF THE TAPE >>SOME THINGS YOU SEE IS YOU NEVER USED TO SEE IS ALL THE PLAYERS NOW JUMP SERVING JUST TO GET ANY EXTRA ADVANTAGE YOU CAN.

SNO>>AGAIN, THE OUTSIDE HITTERS FOR DYKE NEW HARTFORD, 1 AND 2 PETERSEN AND WEBER HAVE REALLY LED THIS TEAM.>>SYDNEY PETERSEN TOO STRONG ON THE SERVE >>AND WEBER ONLY A SOPHOMORE, SO SHE’LL BE BACK.>>AND NOW THE WOLF PACK WILL PUT EMMA BOUSEMA BACK TO SERVE >>HER MOM PLAYED HERE IN 1990 WITH COACH TAMMY VEERBEEK DYKE NEW HARTFORD MAKING IT TOUGH ON WESTERN CHRISTIAN >>THAT WAS A GREAT ATTACK ON THE BLOCK. THE DIFFERENCE IS REALLY COMPENSATING FOR THE QUICK ATTACK FROM DYKE NEW HARTFORD >>NOW TO VEERBEEK. WEBER. BATTLE AT THE NET. VEERBEEK GETS IT DOWN.>>GREAT TIMING THERE BY ASHTYN VEERBEEK. YOU ALWAYS WANT TO GET THE SECOND PUSH. THE SECOND PUSH WINS. SO THE TIMING, IF YOU CAN GET THAT SECOND PUSH TO GET THE WINNER THERE >>NOW TORI WYNJA WILL SERVE.>>ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL PASS >>HEDGES AND IT WAS ALMOST MISSED BY RICKERT, BUT IT DOES GO. YEAH, SHE’LL TAKE IT >>NICE MADISON HEDGES DOING A NICE JOB AS QUARTERBACK RUNNING THE OFFENSE. IT’S REALLY MIXING UP, KEEPING THAT BLOCK OFF BALANCE THERE.>>VEERBEEK. BOY, WHEN SHE RUNS THE SLIDE, YOU SAW THE EYES OF DYKE NEW HARTFORD JUST LIGHT UP A LITTLE BIT >>SHE’S A BASKETBALL PLAYER SO YATES LAY-UP AND DOING A VOLLEYBALL KILL TO THE RIGHT SIDE >>OFF ON THE THIRD. HEDGES GOES TO THE RIGHT SIDE >>GOOD FUNDAMENTAL COVERAGE THERE ON THAT BLOCK.>>AND THE POINT GOES TO DYKE NEW HARTFORD >>KIND OF DEMORALIZING. YOU GET SLIGHT TOUGH, GET A BLOCK UP THERE.

BACK ROW ATTACK HERE.>>BEAUTIFUL DIG >>DOVE HAS IT BLOCKED, HACKED DOWN IN THE MIDDLE. THE 6 -FOOT SENIOR — >>EXACTLY. RIGHT UP THERE. NICE BIG BLOCK, BIG HANDS. GOOD SCRAMBLE BY DYKE NEW HARTFORD. JUST TOO MUCH AT THE NET. AGAIN, THEY’RE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE HEIGHT ADVANTAGE >>WESTERN TRYING TO RALLY HERE AFTER BEING DOWN AT 5. AND THAT JUST DIDN’T GET IN FOR BAYLEE PETERSEN >>BEAUTIFUL ANGLE WITH THE SHOT THERE. DEFENSE HAS TO SWING FROM THE OUTSIDE >>YOU’VE GOT BAYLEE PETERSEN WITH 8 KILLS. 8 KILLS ALSO FOR AMBER RICKERT. NOW HEDGES BACK HERE TO PETERSEN WITH A TACK OVER, AND SHE’LL GET IT >>A SMART SHOT. AGAIN, NOT ALWAYS HARD BUT FINDING THE OPEN SPOT AND GOOD TEAMMATES TELLING HER, HEY, YOU’VE GOT TWO BIG BLOCKERS UP THERE. JUST ROLL IT OVER. THE HITTER ALWAYS WANTS TO COMPLIMENT AND THANK THEIR DEFENSIVE PLAYER BEHIND THEM TELLING THEM WHERE TO PUT THE BALL >>IT’S A LONG TIME IN A CLASS 2A TITLE GAME WITH SEVERAL HITS CALLED HERE. 2009 WAS THE TEAM THAT WASN’T NAMED DYKE NEW HARTFORD OR WESTERN CHRISTIAN THAT HAS WON THE CLASS 2A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME >>THAT’S PRETTY AMAZING. SO QUITE A RUN BY BOTH OF THESE TWO PROGRAMS. IT’S A JOY TO BE HERE WATCHING THEM. AND WE HOPE THAT YOU’RE ENJOYING IT AT HOME TOO AS WELL. AND NOW DYKE NEW HARTFORD UP BY 3 HERE IN THE SECOND SET.
