The No. 13 BYU women’s volleyball team defeated San Francisco in three quick sets Saturday afternoon in the Smith Field House for their tenth sweep of the season (25-15, 25-16, 25-10).
“I think we did a good job of having a calm mind and doing our job,” sophomore Lacy Haddock said. “The rest will take care of itself.”
The first set the Cougars came out strong and quickly pulled ahead and won the set on a dump by setter Lyndie Haddock 25-15.
BYU did the same thing in the second set with assistance of several big blocks from Amy Boswell. Makenna Santiago delivered an ace to close out the set 25-16.
The Cougars came out dominate in the third set and with a lot of scrappy play led San Francisco 21-6. Towards the end of the set the Dons pushed four points but ultimately BYU won the third and final set on an ace from Madeline Graham.
Mckenna Miller led the Cougars with with nine kills. Lacy Haddock contributed eight kills on a .667 clip and Lyndie Haddock added seven kills and 25 assists. Amy Boswell tallied six big blocks for the Cougars.
Typical starting outside hitter, Veronica Jones-Perry was noticeably absent from her second consecutive game due to an apparent hand injury. She could been seen on the side of the court not dressed out with her right hand wrapped. It is expected that she will be back in three or four weeks.
The Cougars will hit the road next week when they play Pepperdine Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. and will play again Friday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. against San Diego.
