MILWAUKEE, WIS.--The Alverno College volleyball team dropped a non-conference match against Lake Forest Tuesday evening 3-0.
Lake Forest started the match with a quick 7-3 lead. After a Forester kill and an Inferno attack error expanded the Lake Forest lead to 16-7, Alverno responded with a 5-0 run led by Cailey Jeske who recorded three service aces. After a Lake Forest timeout, the Foresters continued to connect taking the set 25-16 off a Lake Forest kill.
The second set started with neither team gaining the advantage. However, Lake Forest began to pull away after two Inferno attack errors. A late 3-0 run for Alverno was not enough as an Inferno service error claimed the set in favor of Lake Forest.
Lake Forest continued to connect offensively in the third set taking a 10-4 lead. The sizeable advantage was too much for the Inferno to recover as Lake Forest took the set and the match 25-17.
"We really have yet to show, on the scoreboard, our accomplishments on the season and some the growth we have as a program." Said Susan Peterson. "They keep their spirits high during practice. We have to show people what we see, as a staff, everyday."
Alverno continues their homestand with a NACC match against Concordia Chicago Friday, Oct. 20 at 5 p.m.
