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.

Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
