ROCHESTER, Minn. - The NIACC volleyball team went 1-1 at the RCTC Yellowjacket Invitational on Saturday.
NIACC topped Rock Valley College 3-0 (25-22, 25-19, 24-15) and dropped a 3-1 (25-20. 21-25, 25-23, 25-20) decision to RCTC.
"We didn't finish as strong as we would have wanted," NIACC coach Chris Brandt said, "but overall the team worked on lots of little things - most importantly the mental errors.
"Defensively, we did a nice job getting the blocks as well as keeping the ball alive. Our offense did a good job making smart choices, especially during the chaos at the net."
Sophomore Kennedy Meister led the Lady Trojans with 29 kills, 25 digs, four assists and four blocks.
NIACC also received eight kills, 19 digs and seven blocks from Shelby Heston. Alexa Loftus had 19 kills and seven digs, Sarah Kimberly had 15 kills, five digs and eight blocks and Braylee Wood had six blocks and three kills.
NIACC returns to action Wednesday at home against Hawkeye CC in an ICCAC contest. Match time is slated for 7 p.m.
