Fort Lewis College volleyball used a barrage of kills to finally get on the right side of the win column Saturday, beating Mary 3-1 before falling 3-0 to Dixie State on Saturday at the Western Colorado Fall Classic in Grand Junction.
Taylor Frederking and Ashley Wells led the way with eight kills apiece in FLCs 21-25, 25-16, 27-25, 25-16 win over Mary. The Skyhawks (1-5) had 14 aces.
It was definitely an emotional one, especially with the 27-25 third-game win, FLC head coach Shelly Aaland said.
After rallying in the first game, Dixie State pulled away for a 25-19, 25-21, 25-9 victory in the nightcap.
Jenna Kinzer combined for 50 digs in two matches.
We had all sorts of opportunities to put them away. ... Those are the kind of things that happen when you have a pretty young team out there, Aaland said.
