Sophomore outside hitter Alison Davenport, an Auburn Mountainview product, contributied 10 kills, 16 digs and a career-high seven blocks as the Western Washington University volleyball team defeated host West Florida in a five-set match Saturday evening at Pensacola, Fla.

It was Davenport’s second double-double of the day.

WWU (1-3), ranked No. 5 in the preseason AVCA Top 25, entered the win column for the 2018 season by beating the No. 15 Argonauts (2-2) by scores of 25-15, 21-25, 25-21, 24-26, 15-13.

The Vikings opened the tournament falling to No. 24 Wheeling (W. Va.) Jesuit, No. 2 Southwest Minnesota State and No. 7 Regis (Denver), the beginning of a grueling nonconference schedule that features all eight opponents ranked or receiving votes in the preseason poll.

The Vikings return to action next week with four matches at the Division 2 West Region Showcase in Azusa, Calif., hosted by Azusa Pacific University.

The home opener on WECU Court in Carver Gym will be Thursday, Sept. 6 against Seattle Pacific.

Single-game and season tickets for the volleyball season are now on sale at WWUVikings.com/Tickets.
