HOLLAND—The 10th ranked Calvin volleyball team traveled to the DeVos Fieldhouse to take on 8th ranked Hope College.

This comeback, however, fell just short as Hope took the first set. Calvin never really recovered. The Knights did, however, hold the lead in the second set 7-6. That was the last lead they had.
