With Shawano trailing by six points early in the fourth set, already down 2-1 in games to Seymour, Julia Klement came up with five kills in six points to start a comeback that would lead the Hawks to a five-set victory at home Thursday.
The loss was Seymour’s first in Bay Conference action, allowing the Hawks to move into a tie for second place with the Thunder, one match behind Xavier.
“I think it just shows that when we play our game on our side that we can be unstoppable,” Shawano head coach Breanne Young said. “We have a great offense and a strong defense.”
Klement, who struggled to get kills early in the match, was able to get on top of the ball on her swings, along with getting better sets, in the final two games of the win (25-21, 18-25, 21-25, 25-21, 15-9).
“I was more pumped and I wanted to win,” Klement said. “I had more energy.”
