Volleyball set for semifinal showdown with No. 25 LindenwoodBaker_vs_Jewell

ST. CHARLES, Mo. – The Baker women’s volleyball team is in a similar position to last season, but this time they’re playing the role of underdogs.

Baker (23-12 overall, 5-4 HAAC) will face high-flying Lindenwood (31-12 overall, 8-2 HAAC) in the conference tournament semifinals Wednesday evening in St. Charles.

Senior Brooke Pryor and sophomore Jana Boss (pictured) continues to lead the squad offensively. Pryor is averaging 3.7 kills per set, while Boss is chipping in with 8.3 assists.

Defensively, Brooke Allen is coming off her best performance of the season in the HAAC quarterfinals against William Jewell College. Allen recorded a career-high 53 digs, surpassing her previous mark of 46 that she set against William Jewell in 2009.

“We’re going into this with high expectations and hopes,” said assistant coach Matt Windle. “Lindenwood has been our nemesis, it would be nice to walk in their house and come out with a victory.”

25th ranked Lindenwood University has been consistent all season in the Heart of America Athletic Conference. After finishing 2009 undefeated in the HAAC, the Lions have dropped only two games in their 2010 campaign to Evangel and Benedictine.
