Vaudt powers Bulldogs past York College, 3-1

A balanced offensive attack led the Concordia University volleyball team to a 3-1 win over York College on Wednesday evening in Seward.  Scores of the match were 25-19, 22-25, 25-20 and 25-17.  The Bulldogs moved to 10-9 on the year with the win, while York College slipped to 8-11 with the loss. 

Chelsea Vaudt pounded 15 kills and added five solo and six assisted blocks on the night for Concordia in the victory.  Amanda Kisker also reached double figured in kills with 11 and added four assisted blocks.  Sloan Brandon chipped in with seven kills and led the way defensively with 22 digs, while Alex Szalawiga put down seven kills and added 13 digs in the Concordia win. 

“It feels good to get a win,” said Bulldog senior Alex Szalawiga.  “We needed to get this one, and we hope this will kick start things for a good rest of the week in practice.  We have talent on this team.  We need to keep playing with confidence and try to become more consistent.”  

The Bulldogs return to conference play on Saturday with a Homecoming match against No. 5 Northwestern College.  The Red Raiders are 21-0 overall on the year with a 5-0 record in GPAC play.  The junior varsity match is scheduled for 3 pm with varsity action to follow at 4:30 at the Health, Human Performance and Athletic Center.  It will be Bulldog Pride Day at the HHPAC.  Fans are encouraged to wear blue and white to help support the Bulldogs.
