Read Time:1 Minute, 24 Second

WAYNE, Neb. — The Minnesota Duluth volleyball team found itself trailing after one set in the opening round of the NCAA Division II tournament, and one player, in particular, wasn’t about to let that stand.

Sydney Lanoue.

Lanoue, a senior defensive specialist turned rock-solid outside hitter, had a career-high 22 kills to lead the third-seeded Bulldogs to a 3-1 (21-25, 25-21, 25-19, 25-19) victory over sixth-seeded Washburn Friday afternoon at the Central Region tournament before 175 at Rice Auditorium.

“Syd played like a senior who didn’t want to be done,” UMD coach Jim Boos said.

Lanoue also added a match-high 22 digs for the Bulldogs (27-4), who advance to play at 5 p.m. Saturday against the winner of the match between Concordia-St. Paul and Nebraska-Kearney.

Samantha Paulsen added 15 kills for UMD, Cianna Selbitschka had 11 kills and 11 digs and Deer River’s Hope Schjenken led up front with four blocks.

Madison Gordon spearheaded the offense with 55 set assists while Kaylyn Madison chipped in 15 digs for the Bulldogs.

Jalyn Stevenson had 15 kills and 10 digs to lead Washburn (24-8). Austin Broadie added 12 kills while Kassidy Pfeiffer and Kealy Kiviniemi were tough up front with five blocks apiece for the Ichabods.
