FOREST GROVE, Oregon – The Puget Sound volleyball team extended its winning streak to seven games as the Loggers topped Pacific, 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-12), on Friday night.

The Loggers (9-3, 4-0 NWC) went down 4-0 in the first set, but slowly clawed back to tie the game at 16-16. They went on to win the game, 25-21, and never trailed the Boxers (6-6, 0-2 NWC) again until the beginning of the third set. Puget Sound trailed 2-1 at one point, and then rattled off 9-2 run to take complete control of the set and the match.

Hannah Stinson tallied 14 kills for a second consecutive game, on a .480 attack percentage. The junior has posted double-digit kills in nine games this year, including 10+ kills in four consecutive games. She also recorded five blocks in the match.

Rachael Garrison (16) and Moira McVicar (10) each recorded at least 10 digs. McVicar finished with 20 assists and Kayla Thaller finished with 11 assists.

The Loggers recorded a .240 attack percentage against the Boxers, while Pacific hit just a .019 percentage.

The Loggers will look to push their win streak to eight next weekend, when they travel to Spokane to take on Whitworth. The game, on Friday, September 30, is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
