The Eagles started out strong in the second set, leading the Sunbirds 7-1 with kills from numerous players, including Tjepkema and senior outside hitter Sabrina Winslow. Winslow later finished with the most kills on the court between both teams at 10. Biola finished the set quickly, winning 25-10.
EAGLES FINISH STRONG
The last set was the closest as FPU tried to fight back, but the Eagles came up with some big blocks to halt their attack. Freshman middle blocker Abigail Copeland led her team with three block assists. Biola won the set with ease, 25-19.
The Eagles (6-5) will be back out on the court Saturday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. for their first home match at Chase Gymnasium against Concordia Irvine University.
