The Lakeland College women's volleyball team improved to 11-8 and remains a perfect 6-0 in the Northern Athletics Conference following a pair of 3-0 wins over NAC rival Concordia University Chicago and non-conference Purdue North Central on Saturday at a triangular meet at Concordia in River Forest, Ill.
"It was the best volleyball we have played all year," said head coach Chad Schreiber of his team's play. "We were firing on all cylinders, and no matter what Concordia did we had an answer for it."
The squad was indeed clicking on offense against Concordia, as the Muskies defeated the Cougars by comfortable margins of 30-20, 30-22, 30-16. Also, three Muskies hit .500, including senior outside hitter Ashley Domask, who knocked down a team high 16 kills and added 13 digs. Junior right side hitter Heidi Kramer and sophomore middle hitter Kim Linger were also solid on offense with nine kills apiece.
Sophomore outside hitter Brittanie Paulus boosted the team on defense and topped the digs column with 21, while also adding eight kills, and sophomore defensive specialist Tonia Strebelinski tallied 17 digs.
The Muskies continued their strong play against Purdue North Central, finishing off the match with scores of 30-19, 30-16 and 30-17.
A few of Lakeland's sophomore back-ups also got their time to shine on offense, as utility Kaylyn Kasper and middle hitter Jessica Keller led the team in kills with eight and seven, respectively, with Keller hitting .500. Kasper also tied for team digs leader at 14 with senior right side hitter Alayna Flynn, who also recorded six kills.
The Muskies are currrently the only remaining undefeated team in the NAC, but will have to fight though three upcoming conference matches in a row to keep that claim, starting with Aurora University on Friday, Oct. 5. Match time is set for 7 p.m.
