Bemidji State falls in season finale to Winona State, 3-1

BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Gymnasium) – The Bemidji State University volleyball team dropped its season finale to Winona State University Saturday afternoon by a score of 3-1 (25-21, 24-26, 15-25, 23-25). Freshmen Jessica Yost (OH, Bemidji, Minn.) and Amanda Tronick (OH, Hutchinson, Minn.) both had stellar games offensively for BSU. Yost posted 16 kills with a .286 attacking percentage, while Tronick hit .310 and complied 11 kills.

Bemidji State hit .286 to Winona State’s .167 to take the first set, 25-21. Yost paced the Beavers in the first set when she had five kills, followed by Tronick with three. BSU held the lead for most of the set, but with the score tied at 18 the Beavers went on a 5-0 run that sunk the Warriors.

The second frame was a defensive battle as both teams did not hit higher than .100. Leading the defensive charge for BSU was Courtney Fox (DS, So., Hutchinson, Minn.) with six digs. Bemidji State had 18 digs in the set, but Winona State posted 21 in the second frame after having just 11 in the first. WSU held the lead for most of the set with its biggest lead of seven, but BSU found a way to claw back into it. The Beavers had an opportunity to win the second frame at the 24-23 mark, but a costly service error swung the momentum back into WSU’s favor en route to a 26-24 victory.

Winona State came out with its best hitting performance of the match out of the break as it hit .333 on 33 attack attempts compared to BSU’s .111 on 27 attempts. After taking the lead with the opening point of the set, the Warriors did not relinquish it as they rolled to a ten point set victory, 25-15.

The Beavers hit .375, while it held WSU to a .256 hitting percentage but it was not enough as WSU took the fourth set and the match, 25-23. BSU held a three-point lead in the frame thanks to a Winona State attacking error, 19-16. The Warriors would answer back with a 4-1 run to tie the set at 20. The two teams would trade the next seven points with Yost ending the run with a kill to make the score 24-23 WSU. The Beavers could not force another point as the Warriors scored on the next point.

Bemidji State concludes the 2013 campaign with a 6-22 record overall and a 2-18 mark in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference action. The six wins is a two-win improvement over the 2012 season. BSU will return all of the current players on the roster as there were no seniors on this year’s team.
