Saginaw Valley’s winning streak continued this past weekend with another two wins against both Davenport and Purdue Northwest.
The Cardinals charged the Davenport Panthers and secured a smooth win in three matches–25-22, 25-16, and 25-19.
This victory led them to a 7-4 record. The back row, once again, stabilized the Cardinals in mighty ways.
SVSUs backrow upheld a 71-60 dig advantage over the Panthers. Kelsey Vittiow, sophomore defensive specialist, finished the three matches off with a career high of 18 digs.
Sarah Veale, sophomore and outside hitter, closely followed that with 13 digs. Rylee Zimmer, junior hitter, finished with 12 digs.
In addition to a strong defense, the Cardinal’s offense drove them to the final win.
Throughout all three matches, Saginaw Valley performed a mere 11 errors out of 120 attacks total.
Madison Thompson, sophomore outside hitter, led with some strong attacks, finishing out at 15 total.
More than half of her assists came from captain and senior Peyton Gerstacker, who finished the game with 28 assists and 5 kills.
This game led the Cardinals to a 3-0 standing in the GLIAC conference, which has not occurred since 2011.
As the Cardinals have won the last six games, this victory streak sends them to its longest standing since last season.
The next game will be held on Sept. 20 against Wayne State.
