The NDSCS Wildcat Volleyball team hosted Bismarck State College (BSC) on Wednesday night and held a Dig Pink Night to raise breast cancer awareness. Previously this year, the Cats lost to BSC in three games, but it was the exact opposite in Wahpeton, N.D., where the home squad took the victory in three.
The first game had a great drive to start, with the support of a big crowd wearing pink. The first game was 25-12 as the Wildcats knocked the wind out of the Mystics sails, carrying over into the second game with a score of 25-17. The final game was a tight back and forth battle to the end, with a final score of 25-23. NDSCS now ranks number one in the conference over Bismarck.
Leaders on the offensive end were Danielle Brewer with 31 assists, Baylee Wilson and Moriah Skroch with 11 and 10 kills, respectively. On the defensive end, Shellina Irwin had 19 digs and Kaylee Pender had four blocks. Skroch also added 18 digs.
For the Wildcats it was an important win as well as a meaningful match due to Dig Pink. The support was amazing, transferring the energy to the court for the Cats. All proceeds went to the Roger Maris Cancer Center.
The Wildcats have earned the No. 1 spot in the conference and are now 25-7. The next match is tonight, Friday at 7 p.m., at Williston State College and tomorrow at Dawson Community College at 7 p.m.
