Remer, Saints volleyball sweep St. Mary's
The senior had 14 kills, while Mesabi East alumna Lindsey Baribeau added 10.
DULUTH — St. Scholastica proved the more potent offense on Friday and used it to sweep St. Mary's 3-0 (25-19, 27-25, 25-15) in Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference volleyball at Reif Gymnasium.
The hosts had more kills (44-37), fewer errors (22-10) and a higher hitting percentage (.283 to .115). Jessica Remer led the way with 14 kills for CSS.
A six-point run allowed the hosts to take control of the first set against an SMU squad that had more errors than kills.
Set two went down to the wire, but Lindsey Baribeau (Mesabi East) had one of her 10 kills to fend off a set point at 24-23, then another to give the Saints a 26-25 lead before Remer finished off the frame for a 2-0 match lead.
CSS won the first five points of set three and jumped out to an insurmountable 15-5 lead.
Katie Brostrom teed up Remer and Baribeau with 28 assists. Alcia Draper paced the back row with 17 digs, while Baribeau had one block solo and five block assists up front.
The Saints (9-5, 2-1 MIAC) continue their league weekend with a home match Saturday vs. St. Benedict.
