NEW SHARON – Hearts were aflutter Tuesday when North Mahaska hosted Colfax-Mingo in a South Iowa Cedar League volleyball match. Both teams played hard, but a strong fifth set gave North Mahaska a 3-2 match victory. 

North Mahaska won the first two sets and looked like they may end the match quickly. They won 25-18, 25-22, but the Tigerhawks rallied to win 25-15 and 25-20 to send the match to the fifth and deciding set. North Mahaska doubled the Tigerhawks up to win 15-7.
