Golden Suns sweep the weekend

The Golden Suns won both of their matches last weekend against Oklahoma Baptist and Southern Nazarene at Tucker Coliseum. The Suns defeated the Lady Bisons three sets to zero last Friday.

They were led offensively by Russellville native Hunter Eshnaur with 18 kills and a .306 hitting percentage. Also, on the offensive side Emily Acker, of Denton, Texas, had a career high 44 assists in the match sweep.

Defensively the Suns were led by Russellville native Mere­dith Darnell who had 20 digs in the match.

Saturday was much the same. The Suns swept the Crimson Storm 3 sets to 0. Eshnaur again led the offen­sive attack with a team high 14 kills and contributed 11 digs on the defen­sive side.

This sweep improves the Suns’ record to 15-8 overall and 8-3 in GAC play, which puts them two games behind Hard­ing, the conference leader.
