The McPherson College women's volleyball team swept the Oklahoma Wesleyan University on Saturday night, 25-21, 25-19, 25-17. It was Senior Night for the five seniors on the roster, and boy did they come to play. Alicia Hall, Bree Wallace, Jamie Siess, Kaitlyn Heinis and Elizabeth Williams all had senior nights to remember.
The Bulldogs dropped some early points in the initial set but fought back to win a close set. Wallace and Sydney Burton had clutch kills in the first. The second set was hard-fought, but the Bulldogs pulled away late setting up the opportunity for the sweep. The third set was smooth sailing for the Bulldogs and their raucous crowd of admirers. The Bulldogs were sparkling in service and had numerous blocks at the net.
Senior night standouts - Hall, Wallace, and Williams combined for 20 kills. Heinis totaled 21 assists. Siess had 24 digs.
"Tonight was a great performance and an excellent way to send our senior class out at home", Bulldog head coach Cory Cahill said. "We executed exceptionally well in all categories and it will be great to carry this momentum moving forward."
Assists: Heinis (21)
Aces: Siess (3)
Digs: Siess (24)
