FULTON, Mo. - Westminster volleyball added its fourth win in a row, including three SLIAC victories, by overcoming Eureka 3-0.
The Blue Jays improve to 5-3 and 3-0 in conference play, while Eureka falls to 3-5.
"Eureka is a much improved team, they are proof that our conference keeps getting stronger," said Westminster Head Coach Curtis Madson. "We need to show up every night ready to play. I think our ladies are continuing to grow and move in a positive direction."
Westminster jumped out to an early lead over the Red Devils in the first set and completed a double-digit victory with a 25-14 set win.
A strong back-and-forth by both teams was the story of the next two sets, while Eureka tried to avoid the sweep. The second set ended 25-22 in favor of the Blue Jays while Westminster snuck away with a 25-20 win in the third set to sneak away with a three-set victory, the team's third of the year.
The Westminster offensive attack was orchestrated by setter Kayla Reeg, who tallied 42 assists in the three-set match to land just one shy of entering into the top-three all-time for assists in a three-set match at Westminster.
"Tonight we showed our offensive firepower," said Madson. "Kayla Reeg is doing a great job of running our offense at a high level. Our hitters have been putting the ball down."
Westminster goes on the road to face Principia and Spalding in Elsah, Illinois, at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday.
