Outside attacker Emily Spencer had a team-high 20 kills as the IPFW women's volleyball team defeated South Dakota 25-17, 19-25, 25-14, 25-23 on Friday in Vermillion, S.D., for its second consecutive Summit League victory.Spencer was the only Mastodon to have double-digit kills against South Dakota (7-7, 1-2 Summit League). Outside attacker Kendall Wienkes had nine kills, while outside attacker Hailie Ripley and middle attacker Jessie Manwaring each added eight kills for IPFW.

IPFW (12-3, 2-1 Summit League) in the victory out-hit South Dakota .241 to .216, including having a match-best .357 attack percentage in the opening game.

South Dakota outside attacker Kendall Kritenbrink in the loss led all players with 22 kills.

IPFW libero Tessa McGill finished with a match-high 20 kills.

This was the 10th match this season that McGill has recorded at least 20 digs. The senior also is second in the nation averaging 6.19 digs per game.

With this victory, IPFW moves into a three-way tie for second place in the Summit Leauge and a half-match behind first-place IUPUI — a team the Mastodons defeated Tuesday.

IPFW will conclude its two-match conference road trip as it travels to play University of Missouri-Kansas City at 3 p.m. Sunday.
