TACOMA, Washington – Nicolette 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.
