The Gustavus Volleyball team continued their victorious rampage by sweeping St. Olaf in three straight sets on Wednesday night. The win came after impressive performances from First-Years Brittany Luethmers and Nora Holtan who recorded 15 digs and distributed 27 assist respectively. The rookies were well guided by fellow Senior teammate Alyssa Taylor who led the team in attack percentage and blocks. “Nora Holtan is doing a great job setting and running the offense as well as playing some pretty impressive defense. Brittany Luethmers is doing excellent in the back row with serve receive and digging some pretty difficult balls. All in all the first years bring it everyday in practice and push the varsity to get better every rep. They have been super fun to get to know and play with,” Alyssa Taylor said about her teammates. The sweep brings the Gusties up to a record of 10-2, with their last loss being against UW-Platteville three weeks ago. The next time the Gusties takes the court will be on Friday Sept. 25, when the team hosts Bethany Lutheran College at 7 p.m.
