(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) After less than 24 hours since their last match, the Westmont women’s volleyball team took the court again today at Murchison gymnasium. Despite the quick turnaround, the Warriors were able to come out in full force this afternoon to win a quick three game match against Arizona Christian (25- 13, 25-21, 25-16).
The Warriors came quickly out of the gate in the first set, gaining an immediate 3-0 lead and never allowing the Firestorm to close the gap. Westmont’s offense was on fire and they not only out killed the Firestorm, but doubled their kill count with Westmont tabbing 14 kills to Arizona Christians’ seven. Senior Heidi Thompson ran a very evenly distributed offense that resulted in every single Westmont attacker on the court tallying between two to four kills in the first game. Thompson was not only setting the ball out to all of her hitters, but was continually dumping the ball over the net, racking up four kills for herself this afternoon.
