UJ volleyball sweeps Minot State, remains unbeaten in NSAA play

University of Jamestown volleyball swept Minot State in a non-conference match on Saturday night, with the first set ending 25-22. The Pioneers had a slightly more comfortable win during their second set, as they won 25-14.

The match was not without controversy, however. As the final seconds of the second set wound down, one of Minot’s players intercepted an UJ pass and made it over the net before being called for traveling. Although she argued that she was only momentarily out of bounds before regaining her feet and making it back into play, officials ruled that she had committed five steps in total and awarded UJ two points rather than letting play continue past time limit (which would have resulted in no points for either team). This decision led to some boos from fans at Newman Arena and even drew criticism from Minot head coach Kyle Marr who tweeted: “Love my girls but sorry we lost today by 2 pts because our player wasn’t allowed to play another point after getting called out 5 steps when she was never out of bounds!”

In the first home game of the season, the University of Jamestown volleyball team defeated Mayville State in a 3-0 sweep. The teams were tied at 5-5 before UJ went on an 8-1 run to take control. The NDAC champions won all three sets by scores of 25-15, 25-16 and 25-13.

The Dragons got off to a slow start against their Division II opponent and fell behind 9-2 early in set one before rallying back to within one point at 13-12 but could not close out the frame as Mayville State took it 15-12. Set two saw both squads trade points until UJ went up 12-8 when the Comets began chipping away at their deficit, eventually tying things up at 19 apiece with only seven points left on the scoreboard. After trading sideouts for several minutes, UJ found themselves down 23 par terre when they finally had an opening on serve which they capitalized on with a kill from senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Hagerty (North Hildreth/Hagerty) giving her team a 2423 lead that they would never relinquish en route to winning 2525 over Mayville State’s Anna Saldana (Fargo South/Bismarck Century).

Set three was much like set two with both teams going scoreless for much of it until Hagerty put away another kill for UJ giving them another 23 point lead which became insurmountable once again as she added her third straight kill later in play extending their cushion even farther beyond reach allowing them to close out their NSAA opener against Valley City State next Tuesday night 2513
