SALT LAKE CITY -- After dropping the first two sets by the same score, the Westminster College volleyball team had to work in the final set, because Dickinson State didn't hand it over.

The Griffins had Jovana Sisovic and Alexis Aalona, who supplied 14 and 10 kills, respectively, en route to a sweep of DSU 25-17, 25-17, 29-27 on Thursday.

Melissa Avila led the Blue Hawks with seven kills and 10 digs, while Aly Schieno -- a freshman outside hitter and a graduate of Dickinson Trinity -- and Linaya Schroeder each supplied three kills.

Natasha Malana and Justine Braunagel, a Dickinson High graduate, had 22 and 20 digs, respectively. The Kelly O'Connor led the team with 20 assists and three kills.

Westminster's Emily Atkinson dished out 29 assists and served up two aces. Aalona also posted a team-high 21 digs, while Kyndall Kordakis supplied 16.

The Blue Hawks continue their road trip traveling to Montana Western at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Dillon, Mont.
