Puget Sound falls to Willamette, 3-2, in season finale

SALEM, Oregon – Thirty-one combined kills by Kristen Lane and Hannah Stinson weren't enough as the Puget Sound volleyball team lost its 2016 season finale at Willamette, 3-2, on Saturday night.

Lane recorded her ninth double-double of the year with 16 kills and 18 digs. Stinson put away 15 kills for the Loggers (15-9, 10-6 NWC), marking her 15th game with 10 or more kills this season.

Rachael Garrison came away with 38 digs, which is her second-best output next to Friday night's 45-dig match at George Fox. Moira McVicar added 39 assists, which is her third-best mark of the season.

Katie Rice had 11 kills against the Bearcats (8-16, 6-10 NWC), and Shari-Lynn Hayashi matched a career-high with 19 digs.

The Loggers dropped the first set by two points, but they proceeded to win sets two and three. Willamette forced a fifth set in convincing fashion by claiming the fourth stanza, 25-15.

Consecutive Willamette errors allowed the Loggers to take a 6-5 lead in the fifth set. However, the Bearcats immediately went on a 5-1 run and never looked back.
