The South Dakota School of Mines volleyball team continues to dominate during the 2011 season, this time during Day 1 of the JWU Volleyball Invitational in Denver.

The Lady Hardrockers won in three games over Johnson and Wales University and Sterling (Colo.) on Friday.

The two wins give the Hardrockers a 15-3 overall record on the season, and Mines is on an 11-game winning streak.

Mines defeated the JWU Wildcats 25-23, 25-17 and 25-22, and then the Hardrockers made short work of Sterling 25-12, 25-22, 25-16.

In the opening match against Johnson and Wales, Rapid City Stevens graduate Justine Blade led Mines with 11 kills, and Madisen Lane added 10 for the Hardrockers.

Blade and Lane each had eight kills against Sterling.

“Our ball control was much better today, and that placed us in a better position to score points offensively,” head coach Tiffany McCampbell said. “Senior Reanna Roberson played very well at the libero position with 18 digs and, as a team, we finished with 10 blocks. Overall, I was happy with our energy and play today.”

Mines will continue play during Day 2 of the JWU tournament today when the Hardockers take on Arizona Christian at 9:30 a.m. and close out the event with another rivalry match against Black Hills State at 5:30 p.m.

BHSU SPLITS OPENING MATCHES: The Black Hills State volleyball team split its first two matches at the JWU Invitational on Friday night.

The Yellow Jackets opened with a 25-18, 25-22 and 25-22 loss against Arizona Christian before rebounding against the host school to the tune of a 25-15, 25-13, 25-8 sweep.

Amy O’Neill led BHSU in the first match with 10 kills, and Kylee Lamb and  Caitlin Templeton each added nine.

In the second match, Lamb and Templeton led the way with 13 kills apiece. O’Neill chipped in with nine.

The Yellow Jackets will face Sterling College and South Dakota Mines today.

Who would you take No. 1?

Who would you take No. 1?

There's been a lot of debate lately as folks feel like Duke's Jahlil Okafor may have played himself out of the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft.

Does anybody (ever) beat the 'Cats?

Does anybody (ever) beat the 'Cats?

I'm not a fan of Kentucky or John Calipari but I can give the Wildcats the respect they're due.
