JAMESTOWN-- New building, same old results.
The 23rd-ranked Jimmie volleyball team started off the Harold Newman Arena era in style Friday evening, snapping No. 19 Bellevue (Neb.)'s 11-match winning streak with a four-set victory. Scores were 25-20, 25-12, 17-25, 25-20.
After playing to an 89-10 record in the Hansen Center since 2008, it wouldn't be out of the question to think Jamestown might have more than a few adjustments to make playing in a brand new building. Coupled with the excitement of the home opener and the ever-present UJ student section, the Jimmies made Harold Newman Arena look like home sweet home.
Isabel Wedell (SO/Ellendale, N.D.) led UJ with 12 kills and a .346 hitting percentage, making just three errors in 26 attempts. Jessica Velander (SR/St. Michael, Minn.) added eight kills and Haley Glasoe (SR/Wildrose, N.D.) seven.
Bellevue (17-4, 5-1 NSAA) struggled to find consistency with its attack in the first two sets, hitting (-0.042) and (-0.296) respectively. Coming into the game, the Bruins' .220 attack percentage was 36th in the NAIA. They hit .026 on Friday.
Josie Beckman (JR/Jamestown, N.D.) and Whitney King (SR/Pierre, S.D.) hit the double-digit mark in assists. Beckman, who has had 11 or more assists in 15 of 16 matches this season, finished with 21, and King 13.
The Jimmie back row was busy all match as the trio of Elise Peterson (SR/Kasson, Minn.), Meghan Orr (SO/Ypsilanti, N.D.), and Julina Niemeier (JR/Jamestown, N.D.) combined for 46 of UJ's 73 digs. Peterson had a match-high 22 while Orr added 13 and Niemeier 11.
Glasoe and Kennedy Conzemius (JR/Breckenridge, Minn.) led a strong Jamestown defensive net presence, with Glasoe posting six total blocks and Conzemius four.
Jamestown (10-6, 3-1 NSAA) will play one final match in the Hansen Center Saturday, hosting Dakota State (S.D.) at 4 p.m.
