Friday, October 27, 2006
MOORHEAD, Minn. -- [box score] The Bemidji State University volleyball team dropped its final contest of the 2006 regular season to Minnesota State University Moorhead, 3-0 (30-14, 30-22, 30-24), Friday evening at Alex Nemzek Auditorium in Moorhead, Minn.

Jennifer Janckila (So., MB, Appleton, Wis.) paced the Beaver offense with eight kills and hit .286 (8-2-21) while Alaina Adams (Jr., OH, Halstad, Minn.) added seven and posted 15 digs.

The Dragons were led by Meagan Brandon who collected 16 kills and equaled Mary Sussenguth with a match-high seven blocks as MSUM more than doubled BSU's blocking output with 11.5 on the night.

Three Dragons reached double-figure dig totals with Calla Oftedahl leading the way with 19.

The win increases MSUM's slight lead in the all-time series to 59-55-1. It also extended its winning streak over the Beavers to seven matches.

Bemidji State wraps up the regular season with an overall record of 7-24 while going 3-15 in NSIC play.

Despite dropping to No. 9 in the NSIC standings BSU will claim the No. 8 seed in the conference tournament since the seventh-place University of Mary is not eligible for NCAA Tournament play and since the winner of the NSIC event gains an automatic berth into the regional tournament, the Marauders cannot participate.

The conference tournament will be played Nov. 2-4 at Gangelhoff Center on the campus of the regular-season champion and No. 1 seed Concordia University-St. Paul. As the lowest seed in the tournament, BSU draws the host Golden Bears with the time to be determined.
