Jennies volleyball kicked off Family Weekend at UCM with their 11th win in a row, and their second in conference play, sweeping Southwest Baptist in three sets, 25-16, 25-22, 25-16.

The familiar combo of Taylor Goodness and Julia Bates led the team in kills and assists, with Goodness scoring 14 kills and Bates scoring 35 assists.

The match was another showing of dominance for this Jennies squad, who only fell behind SBU once, 0-1 in the second set. While the scoreboard indicates a relatively easy win for the Jens, Head Coach Flip Piontek credits the Lady Bearcats for knocking Central off their game plan.

“I thought they served really effectively,” he said. “We got a big lead but then we couldn’t sustain it. For us, that’s pretty important for us to work on sustaining that lead.”

The second set gave the Jennies the most trouble, when their quick five-point lead was in jeopardy and the Lady Bearcats pulled within 22-20.

“In that second set, it could have easily been 25-23 them,” Piontek said. “But I thought they did a great job and played really hard and that will help us out in the future.”

The Jennies traveled to Lindenwood for their 12th win in a row Saturday, and face Truman in Kirksville, Mo., on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
