 After losing to Manchester College earlier in the season, the Foresters turned the tables on the Spartans and won the grudge match 30-20, 30-25, 23-30, 30-13.

"We played pretty well tonight," said Coach Schroeder. "We got a lot of points off our serves."

Brittney Smelser led HU with 18 kills and she chipped in 13 digs and three aces. Kayley Cervenka had 10 kills and a team-high five blocks. Natalie Villwock contributed eight kills and two blocks. Alyssa Schroeder dished out 45 assists and had three aces and Stephanie Stearns led the team with 20 digs.

"Kayley and Natalie both did a good job in the middle, and Brittney got us a lot of points with her hitting," said Coach Schroeder. "Alyssa ran the offense well, and Stephanie did her usual good job on defense."

The win was the Foresters' 20th of the season against just six losses. HU next hosts Indiana Wesleyan University on Wednesday, October 31 at 7:00 p.m. in their final MCC regular season contest. The winner will be the #2 seed in next week's conference tournament.
