GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The women's volleyball team ran into one of the WHAC's hottest teams in their first trip to Grand Rapids this week as the host Aquinas College Saints (13-6, 5-3 WHAC) swept the Mustangs, 25-10, 25-10, and 25-15. The loss drops the Mustangs to 15-11 overall and 0-7 in the WHAC heading into Saturday's (Oct. 19) conference test at Davenport.
In the road tilt at Aquinas, the Mustangs (15-11, 0-7 WHAC) couldn't get things going as they managed 20 kills against 25 attack errors in their seventh conference contest of the season. Kiara Cobbs (Detroit, Mich./King) led with a team-high eight kills, while Katharina Hall (Livonia, Mich./Henry Ford CC) and Amelia Velez (Imlay City, Mich./Prairie View A&M) followed with four kills each.
Kara Kempinski (Livonia, Mich./Schoolcraft) anchored the defense with 21 digs. Hall posted 14 digs to go along with her four kills, while Nicole Kempinski (Livonia, Mich./Schoolcraft) contributed14 assists on the team's 20 kills.
Aquinas, the WHAC's sixth place team, countered with 33 kills to only eight attack errors on the night.
The Mustangs will face a unique tri-match Saturday (Oct. 19) when they travel to Grand Rapids to visit Davenport University. The first match of the day features the Mustangs in WHAC action against the host Davenport Panthers. Immediately following the conference match, the Mustangs will take on Indiana South Bend in a non-conference contest.
Senior Night 2013 is scheduled for Wednesday (Oct. 23) when the Mustangs host Concordia-Ann Arbor at 7:00 p.m. The brief ceremony will take place before the match at the University of Detroit Jesuit. Parents' Night is slated for Nov. 6 when the Mustangs host Lawrence Tech.
