It's really hard to beat a good volleyball team in three sets. It's even harder when that other team has a 2-0 lead in the match.
But Hastings College nearly accomplished that feat against NAIA No. 6 Midland Wednesday at Lynn Farrell Arena, coming back and winning the third and fourth sets before giving up a tough run late in the fifth to fall 20-25, 25-27, 25-16, 25-23, 15-11.
The loss for Hastings College is the second in a row to a top 10 team, as it was swept by No. 5 Northwestern last weekend.
