The Northwest University women’s volleyball team made it two straight wins on the Raiders’ home court as they swept Southern Oregon University 3-0 (27-25, 25-20, 25-22) Sept. 22.

The Eagles made quick and efficient work of the match as they took one hour and 17 minutes to the win. NU has now won three straight against SOU as the Raiders still hold a dominant 41-4 record in matches between the two teams.

Amanda Waterman led NU (10-5, 4-3 Cascade Collegiate Conference) with 11 kills and 10 digs for another double-double. Sarah Warner added 10 kills, hitting .320. Morgan Pilon led NU with 21 assists and Alysanne Van Dyke had a team high 15 digs. The Eagles hit .257 as a team with Courteney Carr finishing with two service aces.

Southern Oregon (6-4, 4-2 CCC) was led by Makayla Hoyt’s eight kills. Hannah Bogatin had 18 assists with Natalie James adding 16 more for the Raiders. Ashlyn Flynn had a match high 18 digs as SOU managed a .129 team hitting average.

“Tonight was hard fought on both sides of the net and I was impressed with Southern Oregon’s defensive tenacity and the speed of their offense,” said NU head coach Steven Bain the night of the match. “But our ladies played hard too and it was rewarding to see them get a return on the physical and mental energy they have been investing in practice.”

Bain said the team did not have the luxury of celebrating though because they had another tough match the next day against a “quality Oregon Tech team” and they were looking forward to the challenge.”
