Tabor College volleyball plays Thursday at McPherson College

The Tabor College volleyball team went 1-3 this past weekend while competing in the Southern Nazarene tournament in Bethany and Oklahoma City, Okla.

In Bethany Friday, the Bluejays dropped both matches in three sets to Southwestern Assemblies of Gods University (18-25, 12-25, 18-25), and tournament host Southern Nazarene University (18-25, 12-25, 24-26).

Sophomore Jordan Crosson led the Bluejays’ offense combining for 13 kills in two matches, while senior Audrey Schellenberg and freshman Mandi Phillips each had 24 assists.

The Bluejays earned a split Saturday traveling to Oklahoma City to take on Oklahoma City University and Jarvis Christian College.

The Bluejays lost in three sets to Oklahoma City (21-25, 17-25, 15-25) before earning a victory over Jarvis Christian (25-10, 25-15, 25-16).

Junior Ashley Cohlmia paced the Bluejay attack combing for 20 kills in the two matches, while senior Audrey Schellenberg dished out 28 assists.

Schellenberg also led Tabor defensively with 20 digs on Saturday.

“We did not play like ourselves on Friday,” said head Coach Amy Ratzlaff. “We had illnesses on the team, and did not perform anywhere near our potential.

“After a frustrating start, the team played much better on Saturday,” Ratzlaff continued.

“They played two games against OCU tough, and stayed disciplined in the Jarvis Christian match. We have four matches this week which will be a good time to takes steps in the right direction.”

The Bluejays traveled Tuesday to Winfield to take on conference opponent Southwestern College. They return home Thursday to play host to McPherson College.
