Milwaukee, WI -- The Bucs hit the road for the first time this season, traveling to Milwaukee to take on the Alverno College Inferno.
Unfortunately for the Bucs, the Inferno proved to be too hot, as Alverno beat Beloit in 5 sets, (14-25)(25-19)(24-26)(25-21)(15-9). Beloit won the first and third set, while Alverno took the second, fourth, and the deciding fifth.
Senior MB Jaylan Dunn lead the way for the Bucs in kills, registering 14. Alverno barely pulled past the Bucs in that category, putting 49 total on the scoresheet to Beloit's 46.
Dunn also registered 4 service aces to go along with leading the team in kills. Sophomore Paige Wimbrow, Sophomore Amanda Baran and Junior Abby Gessell added to the game leading service ace category with 2 a piece.
Three Buccaneers were able to hit double-digit digs in the game; Baran with 11, Gessell with a team high 17, and Junior Shelby Strehlow hit 13.
