Biola volleyball traveled up the coast to San Francisco, California to take on the Academy of Art University in what would be the Eagles’ most dominant game of the season. The girls’ determination paid off, as they found themselves on the better side of a 3-0 victory— 25-18, 25-22, 25-15.

The Eagles took control of the first set when they went on a six-win streak, gaining a 20-12 lead that would quickly lead into the final set score, 25-18. Biola carried the same energy into the second set, where freshman middle blocker Abigail Copeland and freshman outside hitter Madison Beebe stepped up to bring their team another successful set victory with a crucial kill and block between the two, 25-22.


The third and final set of the night was close to start, but Biola pulled away at the 15-10 mark. This would be the end of the Urban Knights chances for victory. The Eagles won 11 of 13 rallies which lead to the scoreboard reading 25-15, and sending AAU home with the loss.

The Eagles racked up 15 more kills than the Urban Knights as well as 61 total digs for the night. Senior outside hitter Sabrina Winslow led her team with 11 kills, with freshman middle blocker Taegan Tjepkema ended with eight kills. Junior middle blocker Bekah Roth brought home nine kills. Freshman setter Abby Brewster and junior setter Vanessa Garcia both tallied up 20 assists, each aiding in the Eagles’ strong offensive game. Brewster also contributed 13 digs and six kills, giving her a double-double for the night.

The Eagles (5-5) will travel back up north to Fresno, California to match up against Fresno Pacific University on Wednesday Sept. 25 at 6 p.m.
