No. 24 West Florida sweeps Shorter 3-0
Autumn Duyn earns sixth double-double of the season
PENSACOLA, Fla. – Lindsay Homme smashed a match-high 15 kills in just three sets to lead the No. 24 West Florida volleyball team to its second sweep in two days after defeating Gulf South Conference opponent Shorter 3-0 Saturday afternoon in the UWF Fieldhouse.
Autumn Duyn (Venice, Fla./Venice HS) also collected double-figure kills with 10 in addition to 16 digs for her team-leading sixth of the season. K.C. Dobbins (Winston-Salem, N.C./Arkansas) and Sierra Hansen (Layton, Utah/Southern Idaho) split setting duties for 20 and 18 assists, respectively.
West Florida started hot with three consecutive kills by Sarah Scott (Plainfield, Ill./Texas-San Antonio), Haley Shackelford (Colorado Springs, Colo./Yavapai) and Duyn and jumped out to a 15-9 lead midway through the first set. Shorter worked its way back within two points 20-18 but didn’t score again as Homme (Willowbrook, Ill./Hinsdale Central HS), who hit .464 for the match, had three kills on the way to a 25-18 win in set one.
Strings of four and five points gave the Argonauts a big advantage during the second frame in which the Lady Hawks were unable to score more than two consecutive points, and UWF handily won 25-15. Shorter hung tough in the final set despite West Florida holding a 22-13 lead and managed to ward off match point twice before an attack error sealed the contest 25-18.
Jordan Corder had 26 assists and 16 digs for a double-double. Two Lady Hawks had eight kills apiece, Jasmine Crook and Leslie Welch, to lead Shorter’s offense. Tanequa Whitman led the defense with 22 digs.
The Argonauts wrap up their homestand weekend Sunday afternoon when they take on Alabama-Huntsville in GSC play at 1 p.m. in the UWF Fieldhouse. For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.
