GRANVILLE, Ohio-- Denison opened their 2017 home schedule with a 3-1 (25-22, 20-25, 25-19, 25-20) win over Mount Vernon Nazarene on Tuesday night at Livingston Gymnasium.  The win moves Denison to 4-1 on the season.

The Cougars jumped out to an early 9-4 lead in the first set, but the match was highlighted by the excellent play of freshmen Emma Woerner and Kaila Kasper. Woerner and Kasper combined for 33 kills and 31 digs on the night, allowing the Big Red to record a hitting percentage of .199 and win the kill ratio over Mount Vernon Nazarene, 67-47.

Despite dropping a 25-20 second set to the Cougars, Kasper and sophomore Alex Tubbs totaled four kills in the final stages of the third set to win 25-19 and give Denison a 2-1 advantage. Tubbs finished the night with nine kills and led the team with a .444 hitting percentage.

Senior Leah Reinfranck recorded five of her 12 kills in the fourth set to seal the deal for the Big Red. Julia Miller and Kaileigh Poe set the pace for Denison with a combined 53 assists and senior Kristin Thewes led all players with 33 digs.

On the other side of the court, the Cougars received 14 kills and nine digs from junior Kristen Osborn while Katelyn Dufur and Kelsey Bryte totaled 20 kills each. The loss dropped Mount Vernon Nazarene to 9-3 on the season.

The Big Red will return to action this Friday, Sept. 8 when they travel to Gambier, Ohio to take on Otterbein University in the Kenyon College Invitational. The match is set for a start time of 8 p.m.
