Lutes Open Volleyball Season With Three-Set Victory

OLYMPIA - All but two of the team's 14 players that saw action had at least one kill as Pacific Lutheran opened the 2010 volleyball season Wednesday night with a three-set non-conference win over Evergreen State.

Led by Kelsie Moore's eight kills, the Lutes rolled to a 25-13, 25-18, 26-24 victory over the host Geoducks. Blair Bjorkman recorded a match-high 13 digs and Sarah Beaver led with 20 assists. Erin Bremond was credited with four solo blocks for the Lutes, who came into the season ranked No. 17 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Top 25 preseason poll.

The Lutes hit .300 as a team, including .333 in the first set and .355 in the final set. Evergreen finished with a negative .045 attack percentage.

PLU returns to action this weekend with four matches at the Whitman College Tournament in Walla Walla. The Lutes will play twice on both Friday and Saturday.
