SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Bemidji State University volleyball outside hitter Jessica Yost led the Beavers (7-16, 3-11 NSIC) with 19 kills and moved into second on BSU’s all-time career kills list. Bemidji State fell to University of Sioux Falls, 3-1 (21-25, 25-27, 25-22, 18-25) in the match.
‘I’m really proud of how the girls played today,” said head coach Kevin Ulmer. “They played point for point for almost the whole match and that’s a tough team to compete against. We just couldn’t finish it out and let our lead slip a couple of times.”
Yost now has 1,299 career kills and is two kills shy of breaking Peggy Hammel-Moran’s (’96-99) record of 1,300.
Yost led the team by hitting .356 during the match and fellow senior Amanda Tronick added 14 kills on 35 attacks. Both seniors recorded double-doubles in the match with 16 and 14 digs, respectively, and freshman Shelby Haney coordinated the attack with 41 assists.
Yost also led the team with six blocks (2s-4a) while sophomore Heather Fletcher added five. As a team the Beavers had 11 blocks.
Yost and the Beavers return home next weekend and host Augustana (S.D.) and Wayne State College (Neb.).
