Ancilla Wins Season Opener over Morton

August 31, 2011

  DONALDSON, IN – The Ancilla College volleyball team opened up their season in style, winning in straight sets over Morton College by the scores of 25-16, 25-11, 25-8.


The Lady Chargers (1-0) were led by Kristen Trudell with 25 assists, four kills, and two aces.  Danni Burge added four aces and nine digs while Miranda Hammons and Kelly Duke each posted seven kills on the night.


“The girls started out tentative and really not executing our game plan,” said Ancilla head volleyball coach Lana Singleton.  “As the night went on I felt like the girls continued to play better.  Everyone contributed and I was especially happy to see our freshman setter Kristen Trudell and right side Kelly Duke get into a rhythm.  Kristen did a great job of setting tonight, giving all of her hitters lots of opportunities to shine.  Kelly Duke really stepped up to the call tonight.  It was a great team effort overall with nine different players combining for 33 total kills.”


Morton College is now 2-3 on the season.


The Lady Chargers return to action tonight as they travel to Goshen, IN, to play NAIA program Goshen College.  Play begins at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
