Volleyball team is getting hot

Women’s volleyball has spiked back with three wins this past weekend at the Carson Newman College October Volleyball Tournament in Jefferson City, Tenn.

It’s a strong rebound after Lady Saints volleyball stumbled with three consecutive losses in what has been a promising season. The team is still cruising, though, and has a 15-8 record.

At the tournament, the Saints blanked their entire brackett with wins over USC with a 3-0 win (25-13, 25-21, 25-22), North Greenville with a 3-0 win (25-18, 25-11, 25-16) and Clark with a 3-0 win (25-14, 25-9, 25-17).

Jessica Wedemyer, a senior and middle blocker for the Saints, said, “We’ve found a way to come together and focus on finishing each game as a team.”

Wedemyer, in her last season, feels it’s important to “push ourselves, and each other to the last point — make sure we maintain a level on intesity.”

The Saints have certainly done just that. With this past triple win, they punched through what was beginning to look like a mid-season funk and returned to their winning ways.

They will travel to South Florida Oct. 17 to play Montevallo and Barry.
