FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga. - The Emmanuel College women's volleyball team dominated the competition at their first home game of the 2018 season. Against Clark Atlanta University, Emmanuel put the panthers down in three sets with final scores of 25-14, 25-9, 25-20.

The ladies will step back on the court tomorrow at 3:00pm when they take on Anderson University at home.
