Yellow Jackets sting Quaker volleyball in 3

WILMINGTON — Baldwin Wallace University defeated the Wilmington College volleyball team 25-16, 25-15, 25-23 Saturday in Ohio Athletic Conference action at Fred Raizk Arena.

The Fightin’ Quakers hit a negative attack percentage in each of the first two sets, but rallied to put down 13 kills with five errors in set three. In that final set, the hosts trailed 7-3, but fought their way back to tie the set 17-17 on a Joy Bebe kill that was followed by a Yellow Jacket attack error. Another Bebe kill alongside three more BW errors gave Wilmington a 22-20 advantage, but the visitors rattled off five consecutive points thanks in part to a service run from Morgan Miller to finish the match in straight sets.

Victoria Long and Sofia Thomas both hit a positive attack percentage and combined for 14-of-23 kills for Wilmington. Andie Dolven tallied 21 assists while the duo of Macee Hamilton and Blake O’Brien produced 26 digs.
