It didn't seem to matter which hand Aurora went to Thursday night at Hastings -- it was all working. 

The Lady Huskies shared the ball with plenty of success, defeating Hastings in four sets, 25-17, 23-25, 25-22 and 25-19. 

After each team won the first two sets, Aurora raced out to a 17-9 lead in the third, but Hastings cut that to 20-19 before Aurora pulled away with attacks from Kasey Schuster, Rachel Hunter and Kassidy Hudson. 

With the fourth set tied at 17, Aurora finished the fourth on an 8-2 run with two ace serves from Emily Erickson. 

Following a five-set win over Seward Tuesday night, Aurora's record moves to 14-10 ahead of next week's Central Conference tournament.
