ANCHORAGE, Alaska — In a match that will likely go a long way towards determining the Great Northwest Athletic Conference title, the UAA Seawolves controlled play from start to finish and swept Western Washington, 25-12, 25-23, 25-15 Thursday night to move into a tie for the conference lead.
UAA improves to 9 and 2 in league play, even with Seattle Pacific atop the standings. The Vikings drop to 9 and 3 in the GNAC.
Jackie Matthisen led the Seawolves with 12 kills, but it was far from a singular effort. UAA showed balance throughout, with Robyn Burton, Ariel Austin, and Nikkie Viotto all contributing 8 kills.
The victory gives the Seawolves a season series sweep of the Vikings for only the second time since the GNAC was formed in 2001.
