The Ridgewater Warriors posted a 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-17) win over M State in a battle of two top ten teams in NJCAA Division III Volleyball on Wednesday night in Fergus Falls.
"We knew going into this game against #3 ranked Ridgewater was going to be tough," said head volleyball coach Abby Crowser. "We played strong the first two sets, but during the third set we let our mental game get the best of us. Mental toughness is a huge factor in the success of a team. Once we get that figured out, everything will fall into place."
Mackenzie Swanson (8 kills, 3 blocks, 7/8 serving), Kassandra Algarate (6 kills, 2 blocks, 10/12 serving), Katie Merrick (4 kills), Lindsey Dierks (3 kills, 10 digs, 7/7 serving), Lexus Noyes (11 digs, 11/13 serving), Sheyenne Gunderson (10/12 serving, 20 set assists) and Claire Mathiesen (8/8 serving, 5 digs) were the statistical leaders for the lady Spartans.
