The second-seeded Bluejay volleyball team took care of business tonight, going three-and-out against third-seeded Friends University in the KCAC tournament semi-finals to advance to finals tomorrow night.
They looked confident and relaxed as they cruised to a 25-19 win in the first game after a 6-1 start.
Friends had the early advantage in Game 2, holding a lead for the first part of the game, but Tabor came back for a comfortable lead and survived a late Falcon surge to win, 25-21.
The Falcons felt their championship hopes slipping away in Game 3 and fought hard in a back-and-forth battle most of the game. But Tabor pulled away in the last minutes of the game for the 25-20 victory that would secure the match and the Bluejays’ spot in the finals.
Appropriately, Tabor senior leader Tina Frick got two of the last four points for the win off a block and a kill. The last two points were on Falcon errors.
The Bluejays are slated to play in the KCAC finals tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. at Kansas Wesleyan University, taking on the No. 1-seeded Coyotes. The winner of the final match earns the KCAC Championship title and receives an automatic berth in NAIA national post-season play.
