Land Leads Corban to Sweep on Senior NightSalem-News.com Sports
(SALEM, Ore.) - On Senior Recognition Night, junior Tiffany Land (Independence, Ore.) shined one year too soon thanks to a match-high 12 kills in Corban's women's volleyball's sweep over the visiting Hustlin' Owls of Oregon Tech Saturday inside the C.E. Jeffers Sports Center.
In its final home match of the season, Corban systematically broke down Oregon Tech's defense for a straight set victory (25-23, 25-20, 25-23) with Land, sophomore Chandra Baskoro (Gresham, Ore.), and freshman Bailey Wold (Spokane, Wash.) combining for 30 kills. The Warriors secured their fourth straight season with at least 10 wins improving to 10-9 overall and 8-9 in Cascade Collegiate Conference play. Meanwhile, Oregon Tech falls to 11-17 overall and 3-13 in league matches.
Offensively, Land tallied 12 kills on 18 swings with only one hitting error. Junior Megan Dees (Tehachapi, Calif.) and sophomore Karisa Calderon (Murrieta, Calif.) ran Corban's offense to perfection, as the setting duo handed out 18 assists each. On the defensive side of the ball, freshman Bethany Durre (Bend, Ore.) tallied a match-high tying 14 digs to go along with Dees' 10 en route to registering a double-double. At the net, sophomore Jenny Harman (Salem, Ore.) recorded a match-high tying three blocks to go along with two blocks each by sophomore Karisa Calderon (Murrieta, Calif.) and Land.
The opening set was dominated by Oregon Tech through the opening 26 points until Corban used a 6-0 run to knot things at 16-16 following an Owl attack error. With the score tied at 20-all, Oregon Tech used a mini 2-0 run thanks to a pair of Kristen Walters' service aces forcing Corban to call a timeout. Out of the break in action, the Warriors used a set-closing 5-1 run that included a pair of kills by Baskoro and another by senior Teri Braun (Dallas, Ore.) en route to taking an early 1-0 lead in sets.
Set #2 saw Oregon Tech take an early 2-0 lead before Corban rallied with a 4-0 run that made the score 4-2 in favor of the home team. From that point on, Corban never looked back, as the Warriors increased their lead to as much as seven points (23-16) thanks to a 5-0 run during the serving of freshman Allison Pargeter (Anchorage, Alaska). Corban would win the middle set by five points (25-20) on a Baskoro kill.
The third and final set would see Oregon Tech once again jump out to an early lead (17-10) before Corban came back via an 11-4 run that knotted things at 21-21 on a Baskoro kill. With the score tied at 23-all, Corban got kills from Land and Wold en route to wrapping up the match in a three-set sweep (25-23).
Oregon Tech was led offensively by Megan Christiansen and Walters with nine kills each, while Mikayla Morgan added eight kills. Kayleigh Whelchel handed out a match-high 22 assists, while Sarah Svendin added 12 assists and Maria Baumann chipped in with a match-high tying 14 digs defensively.
