SUPERIOR — A 10-kill performance from Kaylin Plautz helped Wisconsin-Superior sweep Hamline 3-0 (25-12, 25-18, 25-22) in a nonconference volleyball match on Wednesday night at Mertz Mortorelli Gymnasium.

The Yellowjackets jumped out to leads of 6-1 and 10-2 in the first set. The Pipers kept it closer in the next two, but UWS finished the second set on a 5-0 run for a 2-0 lead and won the endgame in the third after the teams were tied 20-all.

Plautz's 10 kills came against only one error for a .375 hitting percentage. Alexie Pryd added eight kills and Maiana Stark seven. Pryd led the team in digs with 16, while Jenna Anderson added 14 and Colleen Claude 10. Claude (13 assists) and Cassy Teff (12) shared the passing duties.

UWS faces a pair of nonconference foes on Saturday in a triangular at St. Scholastica: Carleton and the host Saints.

UWS fired 37 shots at the Northland net, 19 of them on target.

Goalkeepers Jenna Lang and Quinn Clark (Duluth East) shared net duties, each recording one save in a half.

The Yellowjackets return to the field on Saturday for a road game at Wisconsin-River Falls.
