ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The University of Alaska Anchorage volleyball team broke out of a miniature funk on Thursday night with a three-game sweep of first-year GNAC program Simon Fraser, 25-14, 25-15, 25-23. The win evens the Seawolves’ conference record at 2-2.
McKenzie Moss led the attack for UAA with 10 kills, while middle blockers Robyn Burton and Cortney Lundberg added 6 kills apiece.
UAA also showed small signs of improvement in the serving department. The Seawolves committed eight service errors, compared to the 14 they racked up in last Saturday's loss to UAF. Siobhan Johansen had two of the team's seven service aces.
Chris Green's squad is now 7 and 5 overall this season, and Lundberg feels the Seawolves are ready to turn the corner.
"We're all getting used to how each other plays," said Lundberg, who returned to the lineup last weekend after missing eight matches with an ankle injury."There is more trust between everyone, I think."
That chemistry will be tested when 15th-ranked Western Washington visits Anchorage on Saturday night. That match is also scheduled for 7 p.m.
