SOUTH BEND, Ind. – It's been eight years since the Olivet Nazarene University volleyball team went on a ten game winning streak, but with a 3-1 win over Indiana University – South Bend on Tuesday, Oct. 10 the Tigers extended their streak to match that feat. The Tigers currently sit in third place in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) rankings, but will get chances to avenge their two early losses in the coming weeks.
Jeslyn Roat (SR/Greenview, Ill.) was everywhere, leading the team in kills with 21 and digs with 23. At the net, she was on fire, swinging a hot .333, finishing with 21 kills in 54 attempts with just three errors. Defensively, she didn't let the Titans have a shot, finishing with 23 digs.
Lizzie Jackson (JR/Brown County, Ind.), this week's CCAC Attacker of the Week, was also hot at the net, finishing with 12 kills. Kayleigh Kastelein (FR/Dunlap, Ill. ) not only added 47 assists to the four-set match, but also finished with five kills and 17 digs.
The Titans really had to work to get their points off of offensive attacks, as five Tigers finished with double digit digs, seeming to make the court even smaller than it is. Micki Quakenbush (SO/Normal, Ill.) added 19 digs, while Kassidy Heeringa (FR/Kent City, Mich.) and Alex Ewalt (JR/Danvers, Ill.) also added 13 each.
The Tigers (16-8, 7-2) take a break from conference play to head to Grand Rapids, Michigan for the Aquinas College/Cornerstone University Classic on Oct. 13-14. Friday, Olivet will take the court at Aquinas to face Siena Heights University (Mich.) at 4 p.m. (CT) and then take on the host Saints at 7 p.m. (CT). Saturday, the Tigers will face the University of Northwestern Ohio at 9 a.m. (CT) at Cornerstone, then face No. 16 Madonna University (Mich.) at noon (CT).
