By Caia Bevins

This week was a busy week for women’s sports, so let’s talk about it.

Women’s soccer played their final game on Wednesday last week against Mount Saint Joseph. The Jackets went into the game with a few injuries, which certainly made the game an uphill battle. In the first half, the Lions scored five goals, making the score 5-0. DC rallied in the second half and were able to slow the Lions down. They scored a few more goals against the Jackets, and the game ended with a score of 8-0. #99 Sarah O’Shea led the team with 25 saves, a game-high. She made 194 saves this season and 433 during the three years she played at DC. The Jackets ended their season 2-12-2 and 0-9 in conference games.

The volleyball team played at home last Wednesday against Anderson. They played three sets with scores of 21-25, 23-25, and 18-25 respectively. In the first match, the Jackets started off strong and were the first to put points on the board, but the Ravens retaliated and won the match. Anderson dominated the second match and the third, winning the game 3-0. #2 Jamia Murray, #10 Jaelyn Tomoletz, and #12 Shelby Clements led the team with kills, #10 Jaelyn Tomoletz led with three blocks, #5 Emma Chaffins led with 24 digs, and #25 Hope Yost led with three saves. Overall, the Jackets ended with six blocks, six blocks, and three aces.

The volleyball team played again on Saturday against Franklin. They played five sets with scores of 10-25, 26-24, 24-26, 25-23, and 13-15, respectively. The Jackets won the second and fourth sets and came close to winning the fifth but were denied victory. #2 Jamia Murray and #12 Shelby Clements led in kills, #10 Jaelyn Tomoletz led in blocks, #5 Emma Chaffins led in digs, and #4 Kayla Boettger led in saves. The team as a whole ended with six blocks, 75 digs, and 16 aces.
