TACOMA, Wash. – Jackie Harvey and Marissa Florant combined for 22 kills to lead the Puget Sound women's volleyball team to a 29-27, 25-14, 25-17 win. Florant had just one error in the match, hitting .474.
Harvey sent the tone early with back-to-back kills to open the match. She went on to pound down seven kills in the opening set while Florant had five. The Loggers burst out to a 12-4 lead in the set but the Bruins (5-5, 0-2 NWC) fought all the way back on the strength of a couple four and five point runs.
Four straight points on Logger errors brought the Bruins within one at 18-17 and they tied the set at 19-19 on an Erin Campbell ace. The Bruins used five blocks in the first set to claw their way back in it.
They did not trail by more than one point the rest of the way and took a 24-23 on one of their five blocks. However, an attacking error and a Danielle Westerman kill put the Loggers back on top and they eventually clinched the set on an ace from Karly Edwards.
While the Bruins put up the big block in the first set, they did not put down a block the rest of the way. The Loggers blocked six attacks over the final two sets and seven in the match. Nicolette Reynaud's two solo blocks and two block assists led the Loggers at the net.
The second and the third set belonged completely to the Loggers as they hit .276 and .357 in the respective final sets. In the second set, George Fox was limited to hitting in the negatives and hit just .074 in the match.
Jenni Brehove dispersed 32 assists in the match and had 10 digs. Harvey also had a double-double with 12 digs to go along with her 12 kills. Erin Campbell led the Bruins with eight kills.
The Loggers will look to ride the momentum of two straight sweeps into a big midweek match at Pacific Lutheran. The Loggers will travel across town on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. match.
