On Tuesday night at Woltzen Gymnasium, the Lakeland College volleyball team took a three-set sweep from Marian University, in the process handing the Sabres their first Northern Athletics Conference loss of the season.
The Muskies (11-5, 4-0 NAC) took the first set easily with a 25-13 over the Sabres (5-14, 2-1). The second set did not go as easily, as the Sabres nearly evened the score at 11-10. The Muskies then ran off nine straight points and fourteen of the last eighteen to take a 25-14 win. The Muskies took the third set 25-15 after scoring on eight of nine points in the middle of the set to put it out of reach.
"I'm glad we took control from the opening of the first set and held control all night,"
Junior outside hitter Brittanie Paulus (Belgium) paced the Muskies with 10 kills and nine digs. Sophomore setter Kristine Raeder (Sheboygan Falls) posted a team-leading 15 assists, while junior libero Tonia Strebelinski (Berlin) notched four service aces.
The Muskies will play two more times during Homecoming week at
"We thought last Saturday, in our final match of the Wheaton Tournament, we found a level we want to play at," Schreiber said. "So we've been focusing on having that be our bottom level, not our top level.
"Our goal all week has been to never get lower than that level we found in that match. If we can continue to play hard and that's our new lowest level of play, we'll be well-prepared."
