Lauren Carie smashed a season-high 13 kills, and Hannah Schneider added a triple-double to lead Rivet to a 25-13, 25-18, 23-25, 25-10 victory over Dugger at Holscher Gym on Monday.
Schneider provided 21 assists, 12 digs, 10 points, two aces and two kills, while Carie added three blocks and a dig. Others for the Patriots (6-7) were Elise Lowe 18 points, seven aces, 10 digs, six kills, one block; Macee Hamilton 14 points, seven aces, 30 digs; Kenadee Frey 12 digs, 12 assists, five kills, six points, one ace; Livi Trent nine points, three aces, six kills, five digs; April Tripp six kills, three digs; Bella Atkinson 18 digs, eight kills, five points, two aces; and Avery Vantlin six digs.
“We relaxed in the third set. We got behind and tried to come back, but that doesn’t always work,” Rivet coach Jill Ballinger said. “(Dugger) is a decent team, and they have some good hitters, so you can’t let them hang around. With other teams, it could end up costing us more than just a set.
“Our hitting was better. It was nice to see Lauren get double-digit kills. Bella was aggressive at the net, Macee got a lot of digs in the back row and Hannah was strong with a triple-double. Livi and April had nice games in the front row, and we’re finally seeing more kills as a team. We can’t just win with our serving and defense. We have to have some kills.”

VU volleyball 1-3
at Blazer Invite
Vincennes University split volleyball matches on Friday before dropping a pair on Saturday and settling for a 1-3 stay in its own Blazer Classic at the P.E. Complex this weekend.
Friday the Trailblazers fell to reigning Region 24 champion Lincoln Trail (Ill.), 25-22, 26-24, 14-26, 25-18, before getting a win over Wabash Valley (Ill.), 25-22, 17-25, 25-14, 25-13. On Saturday they fell to Walters State (Tenn.), 18-25, 25-20, 25-18, 25-17; and lost to No. 12 Mineral Area (Mo.), 25-20, 25-19, 25-13.
Ryleigh Fidler paced VU (5-8) with 41 kills in the tournament, while Savannah Grimes had 65 assists.
“We need to understand that every game is a big game. We need more consistent play and we can’t take matches off,” Blazers coach Gary Sien said. “More than half our losses are against teams we should have beaten. We make way too many errors, and it’s hard to win when you’re giving over 30 errors. You can’t change your level of game based on your opponent. You have to play hard against anybody. Until we get that mindset we’re going to keep losing matches that we should win.”
