BELOIT, Wis. -- Three days after Alverno College knocked off Beloit College in Reiman Gymnasium the Buccaneers returned the favor with a 3-0 sweep of the Inferno inside Flood Arena in the opening match of the Buc Blast Tournament.

The host Bucs (1-1) topped the Inferno (1-1) 25-17, 25-9 and 25-22 to even the season series.

Jessica Wewers led the Alverno attack with six kills and two service aces, and did her part on defense with three blocks.

Danielle Schilawski posted a team-high 15 digs and Alyssa Reinke added 14.

The teams will play a rubber match on Saturday, September 19 for the third and final meeting of the season at a triangular hosted by Mount Mary University.
