Lakeland opened a weekend of home games against Dominican University on Friday Oct. 5 in NAC conference play.

Both games were part of the “Dig Pink” which many colleges around the country will be participating in. Dig Pink is part of the Side-Out Foundation helping to raise money for breast cancer awareness month.

At both matches prize baskets were raffled off and included items like CDs, gift certificates, and holiday-themed items.

The Muskies struggled, hitting a negative percentage with 27 errors and just 19 kills. Lakeland fell in straight sets after losing the first set in a close game 25-23. Senior Taylor Daus led the Muskies with five kills and junior Brittany Reindl led in assists with 17.

The Muskies rebounded on Saturday for the homecoming game against Concordia in NAC conference play. Junior Katie Freitag led the way with ten kills in a Lakeland romp of Concordia.

The Muskies defeated the Cougars in three straight sets by scores of 25-21, 25-19, and 25-23.

The win came at an important time for the Muskies who improved their record to 14-8 overall and 4-4 in conference. The homecoming victory made for a “Muskie sweep” on Saturday. Brittany Reindl led the team with 27 assists and junior Anna Faust led with 17 digs.

Lakeland has just four conference games left in the season before the NAC conference tournament. The Muskies also clinched their first winning record since 2009.
