El Cajon, Calif. -- The No. 11 Concordia University Eagles (20-7, 11-6 GSAC) came to El Cajon on Tuesday night, taking the match in three sets from the Hawks (8-18, 1-16 GSAC) 26-24, 25-17, 25-15.
Sophomore Kim McCalmont had 11 kills, leading SDC in the kill catergory. She also tacked on 8 digs, 4 block assists and an ace. Junior Lauren Howard was one kill short of a double-double with 9 kills and 11 digs. Howard had three aces at the line for the Hawks. Senior Rachel Blair had 7 kills with one error in 14 attempts for a .429 clip. Freshman setter Cassidy Mertens had 17 assists.
SDC's best look at a set win came in the first when they took the Eagles to a 24-24 tie, coming back from a 21-14 defecit. A big block on the last point by Brianna Hughes and Brooke Marino put CUI up 1-0.
The following two sets saw similar outcomes where SDC held a lead in the opening points, but a solid stretch of serves from an Eagle built CUI a margin they would carry through to the win.
