INTERNATIONAL FALLS - Lisa Kurtz dominated the net to lead the Central Lakes College Raiders volleyball team to a 3-0 sweep of Rainy River Friday.
The Raiders remained perfect in North Division play as Kurtz was near perfect in her attack. The former Pierz graduate finished with 13 kills and one attack error on 22 attempts for a hitting percentage of more than .500.
"That's amazingly good," said Raiders coach Jane Peterson. "She did it in our early game this week and to do it twice is really good.
"There are very few hitters that will ever have a .500 hitting percentage. It's just dominating is what that is. Every other time she hits the ball over we win a point. It's one thing to have 13 kills, but to have it with that few of errors just means something good is going to happen every time she hits the ball."
Lisa Kurtz had 13 kills
Kurtz added 16 set assists, five digs, four blocks and two ace serves.
Jill Wizik finished with 21 set assists, four ace serves and six digs. Krista Meyer added nine kills, seven digs and three ace serves.
"It wasn't so easy as we struggled a little bit," said Peterson. "We didn't pass as well as we have. We had the most receiving errors that we've had all season. That means the other team is getting an ace and that's not good. That just slows the game down and takes momentum away from us.
"But we hung with it and we were determined to win despite the struggles."
