While the Blue Devils (2-0) did not surrender a set and 3-0 wins look like a breeze, both teams gave Stout all they could handle in one set apiece. Stout took a pair of 25-10 set wins over Carleton (0-4), but wrapped that around overtime volleyball where the Blue Devils prevailed 27-25. The Lakeland Muskies (2-2) put up a bit more of a fight in all three matches, but Stout managed to reel them in, 25-14, 25-19, 32-30.

Blue Devil sophomore setter Lexie Nelson was selected to all-tournament team after totalling 27 kills over the two matches, 11 against Carleton, 16 against Lakeland. Nelson added 29 assists, 14 against Carleton and 15 against Lakeland.

Amber Ripley scored 11 kills against Carleton and nine against Lakeland. Libero Steph Cannon was strong at the service line, recorded three aces against Carleton and one against Lakeland. Stout had 11 aces against Carleton.

Wentzel gets win in doubles, singles play

Freshman Elizabeth Wentzel was part of two winning efforts in her collegiate debut, teaming with fellow freshman Lauren Couves for an 8-3 win at No. 1 doubles. UW-Stout lost 6-3 to UW-Stevens Point Saturday

Wentzel and Couves downed Jenna Koepp and Nancy Cozzi 8-3 in the No. 1 doubles match. Wentzel earned a win at No. 3 singles, defeating Barbara Covek, 6-3 2-6, 6-1. Couves earned a win by default at No 2 singles.

“Our two freshmen were really impressive in their first college matches,” said second year Blue Devil coach Bryce Supri. “Elizabeth did not play many singles matches in high school, so singles is fairly new for her. Halfway through the first set, her footwork and movement around the court improved and she really cruised in the second and third sets.”

Annie Sandry, playing her first match at No. 1 singles, dropped a 6-3, 7-6 (10-2) decision to Koepp. Kennedy Kleist lost at No. 4 singles, 6-2, 6-1. Mariah Kent fell at No. 5 singles 6-0 6-1 and Elizabeth Wahlquist lost a No. 6 singles, 6-0, 6-2.

“Annie represented us very well at the No. 1 singles spot,” Supri said. “She responded well from dropping the first set and jumping out to a 5-2 lead in the second before falling a set tiebreak.”

Sandy and Kylie Rennie were edged at No. 2 doubles, 8-5, and high school teammates Kent and Kleist lost at No. 3 doubles, 8-5
