LAKELAND, Fla.— Fire volleyball has won its last six matches to conclude the regular season 23-3.
With the 3-0 win over Florida Memorial to start the day, the Fire claimed its first share of a Sun Conference regular season title in program history. SEU will be the No. 2 seed in next week’s conference tournament at Webber International by virtue of a tiebreaker.
Against the Lions, the Fire crushed the ball, accumulating 37 kills on 98 swings with just eight errors for a .296 attacking percentage.
The Fire faced some adversity in the second set with the match tied at 10, but Southeastern won 15 of the next 18 rallies, with six on kills.
Hannah Kaszubowski, Avery Bradshaw, and Emily Boehlein had seven kills apiece. Sarah Castillo had a team-best 20 assists, and Bradshaw had a team-best 15 digs. Kaszubowksi and Keniah Rivera Santiago were also in double figures in digs with 12 and 13, respectively.
Southeastern came out a little sluggish against Faulkner, dropping the first set 25-18, but stormed back for a 3-1 win (25-16, 25-12, 25-23).
In the first, the Fire had 10 attacking errors with 10 kills, but only had 10 total in the next two sets combined. In the third, the Fire recorded 20 of their 25 points on kills and hit .395 as a team.
The two seniors, Bradshaw and Rivera Santiago each had monster games in what could be their final game at The Furnace. Bradshaw had 17 kills and 14 digs with Rivera Santiago posting 32 digs for the second time in three matches.
Emily Kalmink posted 11 kills and a .242 attacking percentage to boost the offense. Castillo and Courtney Krause each had 25 assists. Castillo added 15 digs.
The Fire return to action on Friday in Babson Park in a Sun Conference semifinal match.
