By Caia Bevins

Women’s sports played both on the court and on the field last week during Homecoming, so let’s talk about it.

Women’s soccer only played once this week on Wednesday. The Jackets battled against the Earlham Quakers, and the Quakers took an early lead after scoring six minutes into the game. They scored three more times before halftime, putting the score at 4-0. When the Jackets came back in the second half, they were able to hold Earlham back, and they weren’t able to score again. #9 Hallie Webb was able to get the ball once in the second half but couldn’t score. The final score was 4-0 with one shot and 18 saves made by #99 Sarah O’Shea. Women’s soccer had a game on Wednesday at 4 p.m., and they have another game on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Franklin.

The volleyball team played last Wednesday against the Kenyon Owls and played four sets, with the scores being 25-20, 16-25, 25-21, and 21-16, respectively. The Yellow Jackets started off the first set with a 3-0 lead and were able to maintain that lead throughout the first set. In the second set, the Owls were able to best the Jackets, but they came back and won the last two sets to win the game 3-1. #12 Shelby Clements led the team with 18 kills, Clements and #18 Ellie Belvo tied with one block each, and #4 Kayla Boettger, #21 Courtney Maxwell, and Clements led with 6 digs each. The game ended with 2 blocks, 33 digs, and 11 aces.

The volleyball team played again last week at Manchester on Saturday and played three sets, ending with scores of 23-25, 17-25, and 15-25, respectively. The Spartans led the first set by 6, and DC led the second by 2, but it was short-lived when the Spartans scored four points and won the set. They also won the third set, making the score 3-0. # 12 Shelby Clements led the team with 11 kills, #11 Madison Shoenauer led with 1 block, and #5 Emma Chafin led with 13 digs. The Yellow Jackets finished with 4 blocks, 55 digs, and 8 aces overall. Their next game will be at Rose-Hulman on Saturday at 5 p.m.
