Mines creates tough time for DSU


Senior night was one to forget for the three Dickinson State volleyball women being honored Tuesday, setter Kelly O’Connor, outside hitter Melissa Avila and outside hitter Linaya Schroeder.

After winning the first set 25-20 against South Dakota School of Mines, the Blue Hawks were nowhere to be found for the last three, losing 25-17, 25-19, 25-10 at Scott Gymnasium. DSU head coach Jon Stenman was stunned by his team’s performance with two games left in the regular season.
