10/05/2012 – The women's volleyball team got back in the win column on Friday night with a three set victory over Lourdes. The Saints improved to 2-3 in the WHAC and to 5-11 overall, while the Gray Wolves fell to 7-16 on the season and to 0-5 in the league.
The Saints used some home cooking to snap their seven game losing skid. Elle Sturgell's eight kills coupled with Nicci Thomas' 25 assists carried the Saints offensively to the league victory. Thomas also recorded 14 digs and two assisted blocks in the first ever meeting between the two schools.
After an opening set win (25-11), the Saints would be challenged on many occasions, but maintained their pose to earn the much needed conference victory. Aquinas completed the sweep of Lourdes with wins of 25-19 and 25-18 in the final to sets to claim the victory.
The Saints will jump right back into action tomorrow afternoon as Aquinas will host IU Northwest and Huntington at the Aquinas College Classic at the Sturrus Sports & Fitness Center. First serve will be at 2 p.m.
