This past weekend, the nationally-ranked Regis Rangers volleyball team defeated both of their opponents without much difficulty. In fact, neither team that they played was able to win a set.
Starting off on Friday the Rangers defeated South Dakota School of Mines & Technology by a score of 3 sets to nil. Caitlyn Burroway led the way with 13 kills and 3 blocks. Nikki Kennedy also added 8 kills and 3 blocks. Although the Rangers started off the first set very slow, the team was able to come together and overtake the hard rockers early lead to win the set. The next two sets didn't go too well for South Dakota. The Rangers won the second set 25-14 and cruised to their victory by winning the third set 25-12. The team tallied 47 kills compared to the hard rockers 30.
The girls traveled to South Dakota on Saturday and continued their victorious season. The Rangers won 3 straight sets 25-15, 25-13, and 25-16. Clearly, Black Hills State was not prepared for the talent that Regis brought. Kelsey Green, Nikki Kennedy, and Kristen Hornung led the way for the Rangers. Green tallied up 10 kills and 2 blocks, while Kennedy and Hornung added another 9 kills a piece.
The Rangers are currently ranked 10th in the country, but look for them to move up after their latest victories! Next up for the Rangers are the Grizzlies from Adams State. That game will be played on the 13th at 7 P.M in Alamosa, Colorado.
Keep up the hard work, Ladies!
