The Eagles welcomed Dominican University of California to Chase Gymnasium Friday night. This match was one of the last for many of the seniors, aiding the energy and spunk the Eagles put in their matchup tonight. The Eagles gave the crowd an amazing show by sweeping the Penguins 3-0.

The first set was packed with energy from the starting six, where the Eagles dominated the court through great communication. The Penguins called a timeout when they were behind 10-3, but it did not stop the Eagles’ momentum. The Eagles put up 14 kills, three blocks and a hitting percentage of 0.294, resulting in a 25-10 victory.  

THE KILL STREAK

In the second set, the intensity only increased. The Penguins got a clear picture of the force they were up against tonight and amped up their speed. The Eagles were tied 6-6 with the Penguins until the Eagles hit their kill streak. One after another each player made a kill, the crowd roaring as they watched the performance. To which, Biola put up 18 kills and a hitting percentage of 0.364. Senior outside hitter Sabrina Winslow had five of these kills out of her 12 total, closing the set with 25-15 for the win.

The third set was a battle as it all came down to a few points difference in the end. The Penguins fought hard with 13 kills, but it wasn’t enough to match Biola’s 16 kills and 0.229 hitting percentage to close out tonight’s tight victory of 25-21.

“It was so much fun,” Winslow said. “My goal going into this game was just to have fun and enjoy my last days playing volleyball and that’s exactly what we did. We came out ready to work for each other and work hard. I don’t think there was a moment where we weren’t confident.”

SOARING INTO SENIOR NIGHT

“Great night for our seniors,” said head coach Aaron Seltzer.  “They’re excited, it’s the end of their career so they came out excited to play. Tomorrow is our last home match, senior day so hopefully the same thing.”

The Eagles (13-8 PacWest and 16-13 overall) will face Notre Dame De Namur University at Chase Gymnasium on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 3 p.m.
