MILWAUKEE - Katie Freitag (Jr.-Kiel, Wis.) recorded nine kills to lead a balanced attack and the Lakeland College women's volleyball team swept Northern Athletics Conference foe Alverno College in three sets Wednesday night.

The Muskies received a challenge from Alverno (3-11 overall, 0-2 NAC) but in all three sets held control down the stretch. Lakeland hit .163 for the match with 34 kills to 17 errors, better than the Interno's totals of 30 kills and 20 errors.
