On Thursday November 2, in Thornton Gymnasium the women’s volleyball team
hosted Edgewood College for the Northern Athletics
Collegiate Conference Tournament semifinal round. The Spartans had it had it easy,
Sweeping the Edgewood Eagles in 3 sets to move on to the
NACC Tournament Championship. Early on Au took a quick 7-1 lead in the
first set forcing an Edgewood timeout. The Spartans continued
to pile on points winning the first set 25-16. Rolling into the second
set Au had no issue handling the Eagles, once again building an
early lead and forcing another early time out. Spartans continue to
roll through that set as well 25-17. Edgewood took the first point in the third
set but once again could not handle the Spartans once they regained the lead.
The third set was one by Au 25-18.
As always Aurora’s Katie Vondra showed out with
21 kills and 8 digs, Emily Lines had a double-double with 36 assists as well.
Spartans tallied up 12 blocks on the night.
