Marian celebrates a point.

SUPERIOR, Wis. - Marian University women's volleyball (2-5, 0-0 NACC) competed in the Stinger Classic over the weekend being swept by UW-Superior twice and Hamline once.

Highlighting the weekend for the Sabres was senior Alexandra Meidl who finished with 29 kills and a pair of strong performances against the Yellow Jackets.  In the first match, she would go for 12 kills with a .375 percentage and had an extremely similar outing in their second match with another 12 kills off of a .360 hitting percentage.

Right behind Meidl was sophomore Jamie Schrauth who went for 31 kills on the weekend and 22 digs in the three matches.

From the back row, the Sabres had strong weekends from junior Jenna Skroski and freshman Brooklyn Taylor.  Skroski had 17 digs in the first match against UW-Superior before Taylor made her first-career appearance at libero in the second UWS match and recorded 19 digs.  Taylor narrowly edged Skroski for the team-lead on the weekend with 33 digs to Skroski's 32.  Junior Andrea Kubicek added 22 digs with 12 of her digs coming in the second UW-Superior match.

Junior Kaitlyn Kelley had 18 kills in the middle for the Sabres with nine kills in the second Yellow Jacket match.  She was also extremely efficient with a .429 hitting percentage against Hamline and a .368 attack percentage in her nine-kill match against UWS.  Not to be outshined, sophomore Jenna Moehn had a good weekend in the middle with five total blocks, three of which were solo blocks in the second UW-Superior match.

Other prominent weekends came from junior Amber Yahr and freshman Nicole Buckley.  Yahr finished the weekend with 84 assists in the three matches with 21 digs, while Buckley served up six service aces with three coming against Hamline.

Marian returns home to take on MSOE Wednesday, Sept. 12 for a 7 p.m. first serve in their NACC opener.
