MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.—A strong attack with a superb defensive effort helped Southeastern win at St. Thomas by the score of 3-0.

This marks the first time since 2013 the Fire won both regular season meetings with St. Thomas, and the first time in program history SEU has won every set against the Bobcats.

“I’m so proud of these girls, they brought in fight, energy, and intensity,” said coach Audrey Goldsberry.

The Fire (16-2, 8-1 TSC) jumped out to a 15-8 lead, getting four of Hannah Kaszubowski’s 11 kills on the night to jump start the attack. She finished the first set with five kills as SEU came away with a 25-15 win, hitting .250 as a group in that set.

“We have been stressing keeping the ball in play and doing what we know we can do,” said Goldsberry.

In the second, the Fire held St. Thomas (5-11, 4-4 TSC) to a .000 hitting percentage, getting six blocks in the set with Taylor Gregory getting three of her five in that set, helping the Fire win 25-20

Southeastern trailed by four three different times in the third set, but used a 5-2 run to tie the set at 15. The Bobcats tied it at 23 with a pair of kills and an SEU error, but the Fire won the final two points on a service error, and Avery Bradshaw’s 11th kill to come away with the win.

Bradshaw also added 10 digs, was in on three blocks, and had three aces. Kaszubowski had six digs, and two blocks to go along with her game-best .417 attacking percentage.

Keniah Rivera Santiago had a monster game with 29 digs to lead the defensive effort. The senior also added five assists.

Both Sarah Castillo and Courtney Krause finished with 17 assists, with Castillo adding 16 digs.

The Fire are back in action Saturday afternoon at Johnson and Wales at 2 p.m.
