After being swept three straight matches, William Woods broke the streak with a convincing sweep of its own Saturday at home against Harris-Stowe State (25-8, 25-10, 25-15).
The Owls (12-7, 1-1 AMC) were dominated in the first American Midwest Conference match Thursday with the reigning NAIA national champion and No. 4 nationally ranked Missouri Baptist but were in full control when facing the Hornets.
Alli Gueck set a school game day record with eight service aces while leading the team with 17 assists. Hannah Kuehl would lead the team with 12 kills and record six of them in the first set.
Six of Gueck's service aces would happen on a 12-0 run during the second set to give William Woods a 22-6 lead before the team would take the two-set lead. Her last two aces were in the midst of an 11-3 run to begin the third set.
William Woods would record 40 kills to compare with Harris-Stowe State's 16, and the Owls would turn that into a .349 hitting percentage while the Hornets had a .000 percentage.
The Owls play Saturday at home once again for a 2 p.m. match with Lyon College.
