Loggers Serve Up 10 Aces In Sweep Of Pacific

TACOMA, Wash. – Jackie Harvey had 14 kills and the Loggers combined for 10 service aces as the Puget Sound volleyball team swept Pacific 25-18, 25-18, 25-16 on Saturday. Five different Loggers had two aces in the win.

Harvey was one of the five to record two aces to go along with her match-high 14 kills and .303 hitting percentage. Marissa Florant, Jenni Brehove, Christina Chun and Andie Keneally also joined the service aces spree.

Brehove served the first seven points of the match as the Loggers (15-5, 9-3 NWC) sprinted out to a 7-0 lead before the Boxers (9-11, 8-4 NWC) were able to get on the board.

The Boxers started faster in the second set but a late run from the Loggers gave them a comfortable lead and eventually a 2-0 lead in the match.

In the third set, the Loggers hitting cooled off a bit but they tallied three team blocks led by Kristin Best and Danielle Westermann. Westermann also had nine kills in the match while hitting .389.

The Loggers hit .231 as a team in the match and Brehove dished out 32 assists.

Alexa Block had 10 kills to lead the Boxers and Mariah McHolland was in on all six Boxer blocks in the match.

Nicolette Reynaud jumped into a starting role early this season as a freshman and flourished in her new role. Her hard work on and off the floor has paid dividends as she led the team in blocks for much of the year. “On the court I think we expect to give 100% effort 100% of the time. We also expect the same thing off the court.”
