College Volleyball: Peterson one win away from 500 as Raiders sweep

WAHPETON, N.D. — The Central Lakes Raiders pushed head coach Jane Peterson’s win total closer to the 500 mark as they swept a pair of matches from Dakota Bottineau and Dawson in Wahpeton, North Dakota.

Alanna Hansen finished with 10 kills and Tiffany Hartun record 18 set assists as they defeated Dakota Bottineau 25-9, 25-12 and 25-13. In game one the Raiders finished with a hitting percentage of .380.

CLC, which is ranked in 10th in NJCAA Division III and entered the games with 11 straight match wins, then knocked off Dawson by the scores of 25-10, 25-12 and 25-16. The Raiders increased their hitting percentage to .406 in that game.

“Usually we are taking a break to recoup because it is our half way point,” Peterson said. “It was a chance to play some different teams and I knew that this team would need a challenge. They love to play volleyball and are happy. Ken and I are the only ones who are tired. They played with good energy today.”

With the two wins on Friday, Peterson is just one game shy of 500 and she will have a chance for that with two games on Saturday.
