Volleyball set for home opener Tuesday night

2010 Team

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker volleyball team returned to its home court in grand fashion this past weekend. The Wildcats swept the BU invitational winning all four-tournament games against McKendree College, Oklahoma City University, Sterling College and John Brown University.

Senior Brooke Pryor led the offensive attack with 64 kills while posting a hitting percentage of .245. Sophomore setter Jana Boss dished out 141 assists.

Defensively, Brooke Allen recorded 97 digs on the week. Allen was named HAAC Libero of the Week for the second-consecutive week on Monday afternoon. Jana Boss took home HAAC Setter of the Week for the second-consecutive week as well.

“I feel like we found a rythym this week,” said head coach Kathy Allen.  We worked on serving and blocking schemes in practice and the extra work paid off.  We improved in both those areas.  We definitely seem to play to the level of our competition, and are able to rise up and compete with some of the best teams in the Midwest.  Oklahoma City was probably the best match we've played this season to date,” Allen said.

Action is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. CT at the George F. Collins Center.
