Volleyball Wins University Park Classic




In the final match of the University Park Volleyball Classic, the 11th-ranked Colorado State Rams swept Southern Miss, 30-19, 30-28, 30-20 to improve to 8-1 on the year and win the 17th annual tournament for the 11th time. Southern Miss falls to 3-4 with the loss.

Senior middle blocker Bri Frech recorded a career-high 15 kills and hit .636 (15-1-22) to lead all players. She also led the match with 13 digs and eight blocks, including a career-high three solo stops. Junior outside hitter Casey Bauer tied her season high with 12 kills and senior outside hitter Becky Sarauer notched 11 kills in the win. Sophomore defensive specialist Katherine Whitney and sophomore libero Kristen Karlik each added 10 digs.

?I?m very happy to get to play this match,? said head coach Tom Hilbert. ?I?m also happy to get (freshman right-side hitter) Tonya (Mokelki) and Becky on the court for an entire match. Today, in the times we were struggling, Bri was the one to get us out of it. I like it when she feels like the go-to player. (Senior setter) Melissa (Courtney) distributed the ball evenly and did a great job today.?

Courtney was named the MVP of the tournament after leading the field in assists (13.73), aces (0.64) and finishing fourth in digs (3.09) She also had five hitters rank in the top seven in hitting percentage. Frech and junior right-side hitter Dre Downs joined her on the all-tournament team. Ohio?s Briana Adamovsky (S) and Stephanie Blackburn (OH) and Pepperdine?s Sophia Milo (MB) round out the team.

Southern Miss was led by outside hitter Leslie VanDuinen with nine kills and a .211 hitting percentage, while setter Amy Truong led the squad with 10 digs and middle blocker Jazzmien Stephens had a team-best five blocks.
