The DePauw volleyball team swept Allegheny 3-0 in three sets, 25-15, 25-16, 25-22, to open up North Coast Athletic Conference play on Saturday in a match that lasted just over an hour.
DePauw took control in the first set breaking a 10-10 stalemate with eight consecutive points with Lenderman serving. That set the pace for the remainder of the set, which ended with a kill from Haley Bitzer.
In the second set, the two teams again sat even at 10-10, but three straight kills from Peters helped the Tigers distance themselves from Allegheny midway through. The Tigers made it 18-11 in the set before taking it 25-16.
In the third set, DePauw led 21-17 before Allegheny closed the gap at 21-20. However, a DePauw timeout got the Tigers back on track to close the set at 25-22.
DePauw improved to 11-3 overall and 1-0 in the NCAC, while Allegheny drops to 8-7 overall and 0-1 in the conference. DePauw is back in action Sunday when they host Hiram.
