MIFFLIN — Iowa–Grant is heading back to sectionals. The Panthers rallied after dropping the opening set to win a second straight WIAA Division 4 regional title with a hard fought 21–25, 25–22, 27–25, 25–21 victory over fourth-seeded Shullsburg Saturday night at IGHS.

“This was quite the battle and with Shullsburg taking a big 7–0 lead in 1st set, we were a little wowed by their good middle hitter, Kayla Klotz,” said Iowa–Grant head coach Marla Simon. “But we always found a way to rally back, and stayed together with our defense, timely hitting, and serving. We did have a lot of hitting errors, but still didn’t let it rattle us and stayed focus for the task at hand.”
