Saturday, September 29, 2012 - 9:14 am

Outside attacker Kendall Wienkes had a match-high 15 kills as the IPFW women's volleyball team swept South Dakota State 26-24, 25-20, 25-23 on Friday at the Gates Center to stay atop The Summit League.

Wienkes was one of three IPFW players with double-digit kills against South Dakota State (11-5, 3-2 Summit League). Outside attacker Emily Spencer had a 14 kills, while outside attacker Haley Emenhiser added 10 kills.

IPFW (14-3, 4-1 Summit Leauge) in the victory out-hit South Dakota State .220 to .211.

Mastodon libero Tessa McGill also had a match-high 20 digs. McGill, who entered this weekend fourth in the nation with a 6.02 digs per game average, now has 11 matches this season with at least 20 digs.

With this victory, the Mastodons extend their winning winning streak to five matches. IPFW also remains tied for first place in the conference with IUPUI, who defeated the defending Summit League champions North Dakota State on Friday.

The Mastodons, though, hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over their in-state rival.

IPFW will conclude its two-match homestead as it plays host to North Dakota State (5-11, 2-4 Summit League) at 7 p.m. Saturday.
