Volleyballers Fall In Home Finale

Hamline's volleyball team hung tight with St. Mary's most of the afternoon at Hutton Arena. But they couldn't get points when they needed them at the end of games. As a result, the Pipers dropped a 3-0 decision to the Cardinals in their final home match of the season. HU is now 9-17 overall, 1-8 in the MIAC.

As has been the case much of the season, the scores were close. HU lost the opener, 17-25.  Game 2 was a bit tighter at 18-25 and the finale was a nailbiter, 23-25.

Paige Walters' (Fy., Nevis, Minn.) six kills led the Piper offense. Lacy Koss (Fy., Dodge Center, Minn.) had 13 digs  and a pair of service aces and Lynsey Reimer (Fy., Peosta, Iowa) added 10 digs. Sammie Miller (Fy., Grand Island, Neb.) distributed 22 assists.

The Pipers wrap up the season with a pair of road matches next week -- Wednesday at St. Thomas and Friday at Augsburg.
