GREENSBORO, N.C. – Kelsey Ruehling had 13 kills and 13 digs in Guilford College’s 25-23, 25-23, 25-14 volleyball win over visiting Agnes Scott College Sunday. The Quakers’ second straight-set win of the season snapped a five-match losing streak.
Guilford (6-16) played its first full match without starting setter Maile Munro, who suffered an injury October 23 at Randolph College. The Quakers received quality efforts across the floor, including from Casey Davis, who took over setting duties and had a match-best 19 assists, plus six kills, two service aces, nine digs and two blocks.
Ruehling notched her sixth double-double of the season and had a hand in two blocks. Her emphatic ninth kill of the match clinched the second set after the Scotties (8-13) tied the game at 22-22 after trailing 21-17.
Guilford’s Heather Crawford had eight kills on .312 hitting and one block. Teammate Steffi Dutton shared team-high honors with 13 digs and Brooke Herr made nine pickups. Dutton, the Quakers’ libero, also came up with two kills, six assists and two service aces. She served up eight straight points during a decisive 10-0 Guilford run in the third set.
Bonnie Derks and Paige Heck led Agnes Scott’s hitters with seven kills apiece. Libero Bella Kammerer picked up a match-high 15 digs and teammate Anna Tomkins had 17 assists, three kills and five digs.
