LIBERAL, Kan.- Seward County Community College volleyball program defeated Dodge City Community College 3-0 on Wednesday night and improves to 4-3 overall, 3-0 in the conference. No. 10 Lady Saints swept the Conquistadors with sets scores of 25-22, 25-16, and 25-21. Dodge City put up a fight but Seward outlasted them deep in sets.

The first set the Lady Saints quickly recognized the Conquistadors came to play right off of the bus. There were plenty of long rallies that went either way and we say 11 tied scores and five lead changes in the first set. Seward County was able to out kill Dodge City 17-9 in the set that led to the 25-22 advantage and to take the first set.

Seward jumped out to an early 14-9 lead in the second set to keep the pressure on the Conquistadors. With 14 kills the Lady Saints held Dodge to just 8 kills during the second set.

In the third set, we saw more long rallies and a Conquistador team that was ready to push it to a fourth set. The Lady Saints responded with poise and determination to close out the match.

With the victory tonight the Lady Saints are on a 58 match winning streak against conference opponents in the regular season.

Seward will now head to McCook, Nebraska for a tournament starting on Friday afternoon against Southeast Community College at noon.
