SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Senior outside hitters Amanda Tronick and Jessica Yost combined for 57 kills Saturday as the Bemidji State University volleyball program split at the final day of the Sioux Falls Invitational. BSU took a 3-1 (19-25, 25-10, 25-16, 25-15) win from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology after dropping a 3-1 (20-25, 26-24, 20-25, 23-25) match to William Jewell College.

Tronick served from the line for nine consecutive points as the Beavers built a comfortable lead. The Beavers scored five straight points to close the second set and continued the momentum in the third and fourth sets. BSU began the third on a 5-0 run and went on runs of five and six unanswered points in the fourth.

Bemidji State finished with 47 kills and a .318 hitting percentage. The Beavers’ servers totaled 18 service aces compared to eight for the Hardrockers. Yost and Tronick led BSU with 15 kills each. Haney totaled 20 assists while Koehn followed with 19.
