BOONE — Southwestern’s volleyball team continued its winning ways with a 3-1 mark at the DMACC Invitational over the weekend.

On Friday the Spartans defeated Highland (Kan.) 25-18, 25-8, 25-21 before sweeping Kishwaukee (Ill.) 25-21, 25-11, 25-11.

No. 2-ranked Parkland (Ill.) Community College defeated SWCC Saturday, 25-18, 25-13, 23-25, 25-18. The Spartans finished the event victorious over North Dakota School of Science 25-15, 25-20, 25-17.

The Spartans take a 23-9 season record against Grand View JV tonight here. Coach Melissa Blessington said her team played good volleyball over the weekend.

“This was a very good weekend for us,” Blessington said. “Playing Parkland was a great experience for our girls, to see that we can ply with teams like that. This tournament was a good measuring stick for us. Last year we went 0-4 against many of the same teams. Our girls felt good about their play and I know we are going to keep fighting to get better.”
