Alma Volleyball wins two on Saturday at Bluffton Tournament

On Saturday, the Alma College Volleyball team concluded their participation in the 2013 Sommer Center Spiketacular hosted by Bluffton College. The Scots won both matches on the day to go 3-1 over the weekend as the team continued preparation for the MIAA schedule that begins Tuesday at Hope College.

In the morning contest, Bethany jumped out to the 2-1 advantage and had the Scots on the ropes in the fourth set. However, Alma rallied to win set four by a score of 25-22 sending the match to a fifth an deciding set. It was competitive throughout and was tied at 18-18 before the Scots hammered out the final two points to win 20-18 and take the match 3-2.

After a much needed rest, Alma took on the host Beavers in their final match of the tournament. The visitors took set one by a mark of 25-20 before Bluffton came back for a 26-24 victory to tie it at 1-1. However, the Scots wore down the hosts in the final two sets, winning 25-13 and 25-17 to close out the 3-1 victory.
