Falcons Cunnniff Achieves 1,000th Dig
Faribault Falcons senior libero Hannah Cunniff got her 1,000th dig Tuesday night in a 3-0 loss to Big Nine Conference Champion Northfield.
Score for the match were 25-13, 25-16, 25-15. THe Raiders remain undefeated. The Falcons fell to 4-4 on their COVID-19 shortened seasons.
Achieving 1,000 kills is an awesome accomplishment in volleyball.
Cunniff started as libero for the team her sophomore season after playing behind Grace Amacher. Amacher went on to play volleyball and basketball at St. Catherine University in St. Paul.
Cunniff needs 25 kills to break the school record. In all honesty barring an injury she would have broken the record during a normal volleyball season but this season has been anything but normal.
The Falcons picked up a match against Cannon Falls tonight to finish their season.
Head Coach JoAnna Lane told KDHL last Saturday in Red Wing she was going to try to get another match added to their schedule this week knowing it was their final week.
