BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University women’s volleyball team improved its record to 5-4 in a home opening win over William Woods University on Thursday night in four sets, (25-18, 21-25, 25-11, 25-17).

After a 21-25 loss in the second set, Baker came storming out to a commanding 7-0 lead in the third set to force an Owl timeout and never looked back from that point on, dominating the third set, 25-11. That momentum carried the Wildcats into the fourth deciding set.
