FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Indiana Tech women's volleyball team end its 2019 regular season slate Wednesday evening inside the Schaefer Center with a 3-0 (25-10, 25-14, 25-19) victory over Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) foe Concordia University (Mich.).

The win gives eighth-head head coach Kourtney Wilson the 161st of her career to move into the top spot for career wins at Indiana Tech as she passed Kirsta Solberg for the number one spot.

Allison Cole had a match-high nine kills on .286 hitting while Jordan Aylward had seven kills.

Madison Park dished out 16 assists and two service aces while Madelyn Omo and eight blocks, six kills and a .500 hitting percentage.

Madeline MacDonald had 18 digs while Madysn Cardinal chipped in 15 digs.

The Cardinals took the first two points of the match, but a kill from Aylward sparked a 6-0 run, in which she had three kills, to put the Warriors up 6-2.

Tech continued to turn up the dominance with an 8-0 run that extended their advantage to 14-3.

Concordia did not put up much resistance the rest of the set as the Orange and Black took the first 25-10 to take the 1-0 lead.

Tech came out swinging in the second with a 9-4 run, with Olivia Niekamp getting a pair of kills during the streak.

The visitors cut the deficit down to 14-10, but a 7-1 run form the hosts gave them a 21-11 lead.

The Warriors powered through the rest of the set a 4-0 spurt to go up 2-0 thanks to the 25-14 win.

The Warriors appeared headed to a quick sweep to start off the third as they raced out to a 10-5 lead, with Cole recording five of the kills during the run.

Concordia would not go down lightly though, cutting the deficit down to 14-11 and then down to 16-15, but Tech rattled off five straight points to get ahead 21-15 and closed out the sweep with the 25-19 win.

Tech (25-9, 13-7 WHAC) now awaits their next opponent for the 2019 WHAC Tournament, which begins next Wednesday at the four higher seeds.

The Warriors currently sit at fifth-place in the conference and just a half-game behind the University of Northwestern Ohio and Aquinas College, who both play Saturday afternoon.
