Molly SchultingMilwaukee, WI -- The Beloit College Volleyball team made their final road trip of the 2013 season a happy one with a 3-0 sweep of Mount Mary College on Tuesday night.

The Bucs won the match in dominating form, 25-14, 25-10, 25-12.

Molly Schulting paced the attack with 15 kills and a .565 attack percentage, which paved the way for a .325 attack percentage as a team, a season high.  Bethany Stavrakas added eight kills on ten attacks (.800) and Taylor Lewis had seven.  Carolyn Stransky made 27 set assists while Cheyenne Moffatt contributed nine.  

Beloit had 14 service aces, giving them 30 in two matches against MMC.  Julianne Gruenhagen led the way with five while Stavrakas had three.  Gruenhagen also had 11 digs and Stavrakas ten.
