Westminster Volleyball Wins Fourth Consecutive Match

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."

Ashley Kistaitis and Hannah Marshall connected on 14 and 12 of those assists, respectively, for kills to lead the team. Adding to her stats was the game, Reeg led the team in digs with seven. 

Westminster goes on the road to face Principia and Spalding in Elsah, Illinois, at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday.
