The MACU volleyball team clawed out a hard-fought first win of the season 3-2 over Johnson University Florida, then kept the momentum going for a 3-0 victory over Washington Adventist in a home tri-match Saturday afternoon.
The first match was a back-and-forth affair against the Suns. JUF took the first game and led 2-1 before the Mustangs took control with a nail-biting 25-23 win in game four to extend the match to a deciding fifth frame. MACU then put away their opponents 15-8 to get their first "W" of the season.
The Herd kept the pedal to the metal in their second game of the day, sweeping Washington Adventist 25-11, 25-20, and 25-13.
The Mustangs return to action this Friday with a match at USCAA rival Central Penn.
