BYU Women's Volleyball Uses Offensive Attack To Defeat Weber State

OGDEN -- Hitting an impressive .335 percentage as a team, the 10th-ranked BYU women's volleyball team defeated Weber State 15-9, 11-15, 15-10, 15-3, to improve its overall record to 10-2. With the loss, the Wildcats dropped to 9-7 overall.

Senior Mari Carpenter led the way for the Cougars, finishing with 20 kills and a .359 hitting percentage. Senior Caroline Bower and sophomore Nina Puikkonen each added 15 kills while hitting .361 and .324, respectively. Bower also led the Cougar defense with 17 digs.

"Caroline provided great leadership on the floor," head coach Elaine Michaelis said. "She hit well, dug well and played a good match."

All-American setter Anna-Lena Smith continued toward the all-time BYU assists record, finishing with 66 assists. After tonight, Smith is only 191 assists away from setting the record currently held by U.S. National Team setter Charlene Johnson Tagaloa.

Sophomore Jackie Bundy contributed to the balanced attack with a team-high seven blocks, while adding 11 kills and six digs.
