Luck of the draw: Allen pulls out the win in Manhattan Beach

College Volleyball: No. 2 Raiders defeat No. 1, No. 7 in Rochester tourney

ROCHESTER—The Central Lakes College Raiders are off to a fast start, and they are working very hard for it.

The Raiders defeated Madison in the first match of the Rochester Yellowjacket Invitational 3-1, and they followed that up with a hard-earned 3-2 win over Harper College in the second match.

Harper is No. 1 and the Raiders are No. 2 in the NJCAA Div. 3 poll this week. Madison was ranked No. 7 and Rochester No. 5. CLC also defeated Rochester earlier in the year in the MCAC Crossover Tournament.

Maggi Fellerman finished with 32 kills, while Paige Wallevand tipped 52 set assists. Kylie Porter totaled 31 set assists, and Hailey Tihlarik tallied 40 digs.

With the two wins, the Raiders moved to 10-0. However, four of those wins came in five-set matches, and three of their sets against Harper went into overtime.

"We continue to make things more difficult than they need to be," said head coach Jane Peterson. "But it was a very fun game with lots of energy."
