Puget Sound sweeps George Fox on Senior Night

TACOMA, WashingtonNicolette Reynaud and the Puget Sound volleyball team finished their 2014 home schedule in perfect fashion as the Loggers swept George Fox, 3-0 (25-18, 25-22, 25-9), at Memorial Fieldhouse on Saturday night.

The Loggers (11-12, 10-4 NWC) honored Reynaud, the team's senior captain, prior to Saturday's match – the last home match of her Puget Sound career. The Los Gatos, California, native led the Loggers with 9.5 points in the win over the Bruins (4-20, 3-11 NWC).

Puget Sound's sweep over George Fox comes one day after it topped Pacific, 3-0.

The Loggers set the tone early behind Moira McVicar's serving prowess as three aces helped Puget Sound claim a 6-0 lead in the first set. Puget Sound's lead peaked at 17-8 after an attack error by the Bruins, and the Loggers held on for the 25-18 win.

George Fox made a bit of noise by grabbing a 3-0 lead in the second set, but Shawna Smith's service ace evened the score, 8-8. Neither side led by more than three points until the Loggers claimed a 23-19 lead, and Reynaud's kill sealed the 25-22 win.

Puget Sound was completely dominant in the third and final set as the Bruins were held to single-digit scoring. A 7-0 run allowed the Loggers to take a 12-3 lead en route to their big win.

Puget Sound hits the road for a midweek game at Pacific Lutheran on Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m.
