CHADRON – Colorado Mesa hit .248 as a team Friday night at Chadron State College as they swept the Eagles 25-20, 25-10, 25-21 in a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference match.
With the victory, Colorado Mesa improves to 13-3 overall and 6-1 in the conference, tied for the top spot with Colorado School of Mines.
Chadron State, now 3-13 and winless in the RMAC will host Fort Lewis tonight (Saturday). First serve is set for 6 p.m.
Mesa’s offense was clicking all night – they committed only 13 errors in 117 attempts. Setter Jordyn Moody keyed the Mavericks attack with 37 set assists, three aces and 10 digs.
While Christian Otzen was the only Maverick to finish in double-digit kills with 16, she had plenty of help. Melissa Hess had eight kills and three blocks, Erin Perez added six kills and 14 digs and Audrey Steinkirchner finished with five kills.
The CSC offense, on the other hand, struggled and hit just .083. Jessica Jester had a strong game, hitting .261 with eight kills and a team-high five blocks, Hanna Flaming added six kills and both Barbie DeCent and Alia Brennan finished with five kills.
