Tabor KOs McPherson 3-0

The Tabor College volleyball team made short work of McPherson in the Tuesday night quarterfinal of the KCAC postseason tournament. The Bluejays won in three games (25-17, 25-13, 25-14) behind a front line that seemed to kill or block almost every ball within an arm's length of the net. Particularly devastating were the hits of Tina Frick, who ramped Tabor's lead to 22-16 near the end of a closely-contested first set. The Bluejays smashed the Bulldogs without hesitation in the second game, developing a 14-5 lead and cruising to a 12-point win. The third game presented no new twists, as Tabor opened a 7-2 gap on Frick's ace and methodically increased the pressure until McPherson broke, at 20-10. Tabor won the final two points of the night on blocks.

On Friday, the Bluejays will play the winner of tonight's Ottawa at Bethel match. All of the remaining games will be played in Tabor's gym, with semifinals at 6 and 8 p.m. Friday and the tournament championship Saturday at 7 p.m.
