D III Women's Volleyball

A source for NCAA Division III women's volleyball info and opinion, with a focus on the Midwest and Central regions

9/29: Maranatha suffers first loss despite DeLozier’s 41 kills, 5-setters abundant

Yet another busy Saturday.

Perspective on Maranatha outside Torey DeLozier’s 41 kills:
• 20th-highest total in D-III history
• Highest D-III total since 2003 (when there was 30-point scoring)

Yesterday Minnesota Morris libero Kaylie Clark had 53 digs in five sets against St. Scholastica. Some perspective:
• 12th-highest total in D-III history
• Highest Central Region total since 1994 [DeLozier had 41 kills in four sets against Moody Bible in 2011 and 45 kills in five sets against Lincoln Christian in 2010, but those marks were not included in the 2012 NCAA Division III record book]
