The sweet revenge was never accomplished as the Tigers swept the Blue Hawks 25-20, 25-22, 25-14 in the first match on Saturday.

Mallory Jark led DWU with 14 kills and was one of three players to get an ace. Lauren Tadlock also finished in the double-digit kills (11) and digs (11). Maggie Stehly had a team-high 13 digs.

For DSU, Maddi Johnston posted a team-high nine kills, followed by Miranda Kadrmas with 6, Shelby Gustafson supplied five and Tessa Sian and Brenna Hansen each added four. Tasha Malana finished with a game-high 24 digs.

In the second match DSU took on a familiar opponent, and fellow North Star Athletic Association member, Valley City State. Last year DSU swept the Vikings in the regular season, but it was Valley City who came out victorious Saturday with a 25-15, 26-24, 25-14 sweep.

Barbara Ector finished with a game-high 11 digs and added six digs and one block. Kaitlyn Heuring picked up three blocks as well as two aces and Stephanie Miller led the Vikings with 23 assists and tied for a game-high in aces with Jen Wettstein with three.

DSU was unable to get in double digits for kills again, as Hansen and Kadrmas led the Blue Hawks with seven. Malana picked up 14 digs, four assists and an ace.

DSU finished the two-day tournament 0-4 and were swept in the last three games, by Dakota State (S.D.), DWU and VCSU. In their first match on Friday, Johnson and Wales (Colo.) beat out the Blue Hawks 3-2.

The Blue Hawks return home to face nonconference opponent Minot State at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
