After enduring some growing pains en route to a 1-5 record to start the season, the Fort Lewis College volleyball team was all positives Saturday, sweeping the Academy of Art and St. Anselm at the Western Colorado Fall Classic on Saturday in Grand Junction.
FLC (3-5) swept St. Anselm 25-20, 25-14, 25-23 in the nightcap behind nine kills from Taylor Frederking and 10 digs from Hannah Starbuck.
Kristin Stephan led the way with 10 kills and seven blocks in a 25-10, 18-25, 25-23, 21-25, 15-10 win over the Academy of Art.
FLC outblocked both teams by a combined 25-5.
The level of improvement we continue to show is really promising, head coach Shelly Aaland said.
