Diggers sweep Northern for 7th straight win
Even on the road, the Orediggers are a Frontier Conference nightmare.
The Montana Tech Women's Volleyball Team took the bus ride to the Hi-Line to Havre and promptly dispatched the hosting MSU-Northern Skylights in straight sets Saturday evening, 25-22, 25-16, 25-17. The win is the Orediggers' seventh in a row and their third-straight sweep of a Frontier Conference opponent. In fact, five of their last seven matches have been Digger sweeps. The win gives them a 17-6 overall mark.
Muir Strong Once Again
Junior Olivia Muir continued her strong play with 9 kills on the night and was followed closely by junior Maureen "Mo" Jessop and senior Taylor Henley with 8 kills each. Their power was set up nicely once again by senior setter McKenna Kaelber who had 33 assists on the short evening.
Challenges on the Horizon
The Orediggers will be travelling to La Crosse, Wisconsin next weekend for the Viterbo University tournament which boast several ranked teams. First up at 11am Friday will be #24 Columbia College Cougars of Columbia, MO, who are 16-7 and on a 14-game winning streak. The Cougars of a different school, Saint Francis of Indiana, await at 3pm. St. Francis is 13-10 and have won 3 out of their last 4. Saturday at 10am it's St. Frances, but this time St. Frances of Illinois who are 16-10 overall and finally the Diggers will get a shot at redemption against the host Viterbo V-Hawks who defeated the Orediggers in 4 sets back on August 18 in Butte. Viterbo is 17-6 and have spent most of the season ranked in the NAIA's top ten. Results will be made available at godiggers.com
