Graceland (8-5, 3-2 MAMVIC) entered today's contest following an upset loss to Clarke College seven days ago. The Jackets made sure there wasn't a repeat performance against Hannibal-LaGrange (1-14, 0-5 MAMVIC).
GU received an outstanding performance from Anthony Robinson who recorded 13 kills, courtesy of a .375 attack percentage. Robinson supplemented his offensive attack with seven digs on the defense side of the net.
Andres Quinones added seven kills and five digs while Kajetan Borecki racked up five kills. Recardo Ferrer and Kyle Kurlander helped the Jackets with fantastic ball control as the duo recorded 21 and 14 assists, respectively.
"We ran a little bit of a different line up that asked quite a few of our guys to play a different role on the team," said head coach Chad McDole. "We showed good composure and ability to adjust. We played great together and I think we have a good future with our new line up. It was a fun win and we are looking forward to our match this week at home vs rival Missouri Valley."
Graceland recorded 8.5 team blocks, limiting HLU to .166 percent attacking. The Jackets, meanwhile, hit an impressive .386 overall, including .542 in the final frame.
