The Hustlin' Hawks started the season with a big victory, downing state-ranked Brookfield Central, 26-28, 25-19, 25-22, 25-17, on Aug. 30.
"This was a big win for our program," head coach Britany Pfeifer said. "This team plays with a lot of desire, and that is something that as a coach, I am so excited to work with. I feel that is something you can't teach - you have to want it."
Jessie Kalous led Greenfield in kills with 16 and added three solo and two assisted blocks.
"Jessie is a huge part of our offense and as a two-year starter, she is really stepping up when needed," Pfeifer said.

"Our team is young, with only one senior - right-side hitter Sarah Habermahl," Pfeifer said. "We have a solid junior class, one sophomore, Sam DeLeon, who started last year; and two freshmen."
