Raiders bounce back with rout of Pacific Union

ASHLAND — The Southern Oregon volleyball team got back on track Tuesday night, ending a two-match skid with a quick three-set sweep of Pacific Union at Ashland High School's Mountain Avenue Gym.

Southern Oregon (3-2) won 25-16, 25-11, 25-17 two days after dropping two matches in the final day of the Paul Elliott Invitational.

The match was played at Ashland High School because the floor at SOU's Bob Riehm Arena is being replaced.

The Raiders head to California today for the Biola Tournament, which runs Thursday through Friday.

Natalie Scheller finished with a match-high 10 kills, while Caryn Westrick led the way with 19 assists and Renee Yomtob added 14 digs for the Raiders.

Jenna Glantz led the Pioneers (0-2) with nine kills as the Raiders limited Pacific Union to a minus-.062 attack percentage.

Pacific Union led briefly in all three sets as the visitors managed to stay competitive in the early going. In the opener, the Raiders closed the set on a 10-4 run to pull away, while a 13-point streak with Westrick serving put the second set away.

The third set featured a nine-point SOU streak to turn a 9-9 tie into a 17-9 advantage for the Raiders.
