The Hawks (6-13, 5-12 ICCAC) quickly got to work in the first set to hold the Blackhawks under 20 points. In the final two sets the Hawks used a strong rally to hold off Southeastern after recording extra points in each set.
Carly Hirsch (Norfolk, Neb.) tallied 14 kills and four blocks, while recording a .400 hitting percentage. Jamie Bonifas (Blue Hill, Neb.) chipped in 23 assists, while Payton Weber (Alliance, Neb.), Elizabeth Christensen (Stanton, Neb.) and Alexis Kapales (Jonesboro, Ark.) each had 11 digs.
