Kritenbrink Shines but Coyotes Fall to NDSU

Bookmark and Share

VERMILLION, S.D. –  The South Dakota volleyball team’s home opener was spoiled Monday night as North Dakota State swept the Coyotes, 25-13, 27-25, 25-15 in Summit League action at the DakotaDome in Vermillion, S.D. The Coyotes (6-7, 2-1 Summit) saw their five-match winning streak end with the defeat.


Sophomore setter Tori Kroll (Germantown, Wis.) led the Coyote offense with 29 set assists.  Freshman Kendall Kritenbrink (Gretna, Neb.)  added 13 kills, while sophomore Amber Aschoff (Ankeny, Iowa) added eight kills and three block assists.  Freshman Riley Haug (Gretna, Neb.) and senior Carol Logato (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) had 12 digs each.


The Coyotes hit .083 as a team, compared to .221 for North Dakota State (9-5, 3-0 Summit), the three-time defending Summit League champion.


The Coyotes were within 8-7 in the first set after sophomore Natalie Walseth (Inver Grove Heights, Minn.) and Kroll teamed up for a block.  That momentum was short-lived, as NDSU went on a 9-2 run to build a 17-9 advantage on its way to a 25-13 win.


South Dakota bounced back with a good start in the second set. Down 9-7, the Coyotes rattled off five straight points – which included two kill from Kroll and a service ace from senior Tahnee Reed (Gretna, Neb.) – to take a 12-9 lead. The set stayed close the rest of the way, and a Kroll kill put the Coyotes up 20-19.


NDSU built a 24-22 lead, but the Coyotes came back to tie the set at 24-24, thanks to back-to-back kills from Aschoff.  The Coyotes had the set tied at 25-25, but NDSU scored the final two points to earn a 27-25 win.


South Dakota tried to regroup in the third set, and led 10-8 after a Kritenbrink kill, but NDSU rattled off six straight points to take a 14-10 lead. The Coyotes were as close as 17-14 after a kill by junior Kim Bulaga (Crystal Lake, Ill.), but got no closer as the Bison went on to take a 25-15 win.
