SAVANNAH, Ga. - After a tough first match yesterday, the undefeated Saint Leo University volleyball team stayed perfect as they breezed through the second day of the Chatham Orthopedic Classic hosted by Armstrong Atlantic State University on Saturday.
The Lions, facing Flagler College and Lenoir-Rhyne University, did not surrender a game en route to a 25-19, 25-15, 25-20 victory over the Saints (9-5) in the day's first match, and a 25-10, 25-17, 25-18 win over Lenoir-Rhyne (5-6) in the Lions' final contest.
Freshman middle-blocker Danielle Bletso (Boardman, Ohio) finished the day tied for most kills with sophomore Kaitlin McKenna (Farmington Hills, Mich.) with 16 apiece, but Bletso claimed the day's highest attack percentage at .625 as she had one less error than her teammate.
McKenna made up for it on the defensive side as she led the team in total blocks with nine and Bletso one behind her. Junior setter Michelle Nogueras (Cayey, P.R.) assisted on 66 of the Lions kills to help keep them unblemished.
