The Ferris State women's volleyball team snapped its three-match losing skid in quick fashion as the Bulldogs dispatched Lake Superior State in three straight sets to claim a 3-0 (25-16, 25-16, 25-23) victory in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) play Friday (Sept. 27) evening at LSSU's Bud Cooper Gymnasium in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

The Bulldogs (8-7; 2-4 GLIAC) hit .209 for the match with 40 kills and limited the Lakers (3-7; 2-4 GLIAC) to a .000 clip with 22 kills. The victory over Lake Superior State represented the 40th time in the last 41 meetings between the two teams in which Ferris State has prevailed.

Junior middle hitter Sarah Lark (Alma) slammed a match-high nine kills on .529 hitting to lead the Ferris State offense. She received plenty of support as freshman outside hitter Ashley Huntey (Stanwood/Morley-Stanwood) tallied eight kills with a match-high 13 digs while junior outside hitter Katie Edwards (Cedar Springs) and senior setter-outside hitter Andrea Rich (New Baltimore/Anchor Bay) contributed six kills apiece. Sophomore middle hitter Arielle Goodson (Grand Rapids/Central) posted a .444 hitting percentage with five kills in nine attempts.

Andrea Rich recorded a match-leading 24 assists in directing the Bulldog offense. She also chipped in with seven digs and a match-high tying three block assists.

Sophomore defensive specialist Dana Ruttle (Reed City) added nine digs and redshirt freshman libero Lisa Tobiczyk (Marysville) supplied seven digs as the Bulldogs compiled a 44-team total. Ferris was productive at the net as the Bulldogs produced eight total team blocks to LSSU's one team rejection.

Ferris State won the first two sets by identical scores (25-16), but were challenged in the third set as evidenced by 14 ties and seven lead changes before pulling out the decision.
