Trailblazers earn volleyball title


VINCENNES, Ind. -- The Vincennes volleyball team put together one of its most complete weekends of the season during the Showdown on the Wabash tournament.

The Trailblazers went a perfect 4-0 to claim its own tournament championship and improved to 21-8 on the season. With the wins, VU also has now won a season-best eight straight matches.

“Everyone on the team contributed to this championship,” Trailblazers coach Gary Sien said. “It was a total team effort and everyone deserves a part of it.”

VU vs. Shawnee

The Trailblazers opened the tournament with a 25-15, 25-12, 25-4 win.

Alison Smith, Ryleigh Fidler and Ariana Gentzler led the attack with seven kills each.

Lucie Strasser (15) and Kloie McGrew combined for 28 assists, while Allison Ruddick finished with 15 digs.

VU vs. Snead State

Maybe the most impressive win of the tournament for VU. The 25-22, 25-23, 26-24 thrilling win for VU marked the lone blemish for Snead State in five matches.

“This was one of our best matches against a very athletic team,” Sien said of the win. “It was just high level volleyball at its best with sideout after sideout. Our blocking and serving was instrumental in the win. Mackenzie Haworth came in late in all sets to get clinching kills and a service ace for match point.

Fidler put down 12 kills, while Grace Doane and Smith added 10 apiece.

Strasser handed out 25 assists, Ruddick finished with 18 digs, while Ryli Bobbitt and Gentzler blocked three shots apiece.

VU vs. Gadsden State

The Trailblazers jumpstarted play on Saturday with a 25-18, 25-14, 25-20 win.

Doane continued her stellar play with a team-high 11 kills in the win, while Fidler and Haworth added six apiece.

“Our offense was in full as they hit over .300% for the third straight match,” Sien noted. “Doane and Haworth combined to hit for nearly .500%.”

Ruddick, who entered the match leading NJCAA Division 1 in digs, added 23 more in the win.

VU vs. Kankakee

The Trailblazers wrapped up the tournament in dominating fashion with a 25-6, 25-18, 25-11 win.

Smith and Doane combined for 17 kills, led by Smith’s nine.

Strasser dished out 20 assists, Ruddick finished with 15 digs and Doane added four stuffs.

The Trailblazers return to the court Tuesday when they play host to Rend Lake at 7 p.m.
