Big Red earns road win at Muskingum

The Big Red celebrates a four-set victory at Muskingum on Thursday night.
The Big Red celebrates a four-set victory at Muskingum on Thursday night.

The Denison volleyball team picked up its 15th win of the season following a 3-1 (25-11, 20-25, 25-20, 25-22) decision over non-conference rival Muskingum on Thursday night in New Concord, Ohio.

The Big Red opened the road contest on fire as they cruised to a dominating 25-11 victory in the opening set.  Despite the dominating loss, the Muskies regrouped and evened the match with a 25-20 win in the second.  DU regained the edge in the match with a 25-20 decision of their own in the third set.

In the fourth set, the two squads passed the advantage back-and-forth throughout the match.  With the score tight late in the set, Denison held on to win the match following a 25-22 win in the fourth set.

Freshman Rachele Lock sparked the DU offense with a career-high 17 kills and a .405 hitting percentage.  Lock's 17 finishers came off 37 attempts with just two miscues.  Also aiding the attack were sophomores Brittany Perry and Elena Lein.  Perry logged a season-best 14 kills, while Lein recorded 10 finishers off 27 attempts.

In addition to their offense at the net, the Big Red also served up seven aces in the four-set win.  Sophomore Kenzie Kuhn led the way with three aces, while reigning North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week Emily Marguerite and Allie Becker each had two.  Junior setter Jessica Borsani dished out 41 of the team's 44 assists.

Marguerite, the Division III digs leader, paced the defensive with 24 digs, while Borsani added 22 digs.  Kuhn finished with three solo blocks, while Lein logged a solo block and one block assist.

Brooke Scott led Muskingum with 13 kills, while Kaleigh Hendrix dished out 22 assists.  Defensively, Kim Seitter had 25 digs, while Mallory Taylor recorded three solo rejections.  Alexa Abrams seemed to do it all as she logged nine kills, 18 assists, three service aces and 18 digs.

Thursday's win marked DU's first victory in New Concord since they swept the Muskies on Sept. 16, 2003.  The Big Red improves to 15-5 on the year, while Muskingum falls to 10-10.  Denison resumes NCAC play on Wednesday when they travel to Ohio Wesleyan for a 7 p.m. match.
