Grundy Center Tops Sidney Enroute To Semifinals [PHOTOS]

Grundy Center’s cross-court game was on full display on Court 2, with Hailey Wallis and Landry Luhring leading a balanced effort. Luhring ended the day with 23 attacks, seven kills and nine digs. Wallis finished with 23 attacks and 11 kills, plus had four digs.

Kylie Willis and Emy Kracht had a strong presence for the Spartans as well. Willis had 24 attacks, 13 kills and three digs, while Kracht tallied 13 assists five kills and nine digs. Kyah Luhring also contributed 15 digs.
