The #13 Lady Spartans had a tough draw to kick off the 3A State Volleyball Tournament on Tuesday. They opened their play at UVU against the #4 Union Cougars. The Lady Cougars made quick work of Emery, beating them in three sets, 25-10, 25-11 and 25-19.
That forced Emery into the consolation round to play #12 Delta. The Spartans bounced back with a close 26-24 first set win. The Lady Rabbits got even, taking the second set 25-23. It was all Spartans from then on out as they won the next two sets 25-16 and 25-19 to grab the 3-1 victory.
Emery will play against #8 South Sevier on Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. To watch this game click here. The Lady Spartans have a change to end as high as sixth place overall if they are able to win their next two matches.
