VU Volleyball posts 6th straight win with 3-0 victory over host Frontier by 25-7, 25-18, 25-16 scores

FAIRFIELD, Ill. - The Vincennes University Volleyball Team posted its sixth consecutive win and improved to 19-3 overall with a straight-sets victory Wednesday night at Frontier Community College in Fairfield, IL.
 
The Trailblazers grabbed the win by scores of 25-7, 25-18, 25-16. VU cruised to success in the first set and then overcame rough patches in both of the last two sets for the win.
 
VU got eight kills, 11 assists and two service aces from sophomore Kassidie Hayes. The Trailblazer attack was also fueled by five kills each by sophomores Lindsay Persico and Kaeli James. In addition, Persico added three aces. Other action at the net for VU included five blocks apiece for freshman Erica Kik and sophomore Jordan Sprinkle, while freshman Genesis Milisde had three blocks.
 
Freshman Gabrielle Medrado matched Hayes with 11 assists. In the Trailblazers' receiving game, freshman Hannah Bullock registered 13 digs and freshman Abby Bigler had four.
 
In the first set, VU caught the host Bobcats off-guard and jumped out to a 6-0 lead before Frontier got on the board. The Trailblazers then streaked out to a 14-6 lead. After Frontier scored what would be its final point of the set to make it 14-7, VU reeled off 11 consecutive points to grab the 1-0 lead as a combination block by Kik and Milisde fell in for the winner.
 
The second set saw the Trailblazers put together a five-point run near the midway point to get up 10-4 and later extend the lead to 18-9. VU assembled yet another five-point rally to reach set point at 24-16 and withstood a couple quick points by the Bobcats before a James kill finished off the 25-18 decision.
 
Set No. 3 started with the Bobcats' first lead of the match as Frontier opened up the set with three straight points before a Kik kill got VU on the scoreboard. The Trailblazers went on to post seven straight and eclipse and surpass the Frontier lead on the way to a 7-3 VU advantage. VU was never able to establish any dominance in the third, but did lead 18-10 on a kill by Hayes about two-thirds of the way through the set. Frontier battled back to within 19-15 VU but the bobcats were able to muster only one more point and Kik began to take over as she moved the Trailblazers to 22-16 with a kill, provided a 24-16 advantage with a block that fell for match point and then ended the night with a second straight block.
 
On Saturday, VU will head to the Mineral Area Tri-Match in Park Hills, MO, with a 1 p.m. match vs. Missouri Baptist and then facing the host Cardinals at 3 p.m. Those scheduled times are both "Vincennes time." The Trailblazers topped Mineral Area, 3-2, in the Blazer Classic in early September at the VU P.E. Complex.
 
VU will return home on Tuesday, Oct. 11, to host Rend Lake. The Trailblazers bested Rend Lake in straight sets last month in Ina, IL.
