The No. 2 nationally-ranked Western Washington University volleyball team recorded a 3-0 sweep over Western Oregon Thursday evening in in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play at Monmouth, Ore.

The Vikings defeated the Wolves 25-14, 25-15, 25-16 to remain perfect on the season at 11-0 overall and 3-0 in GNAC play. WWU has now won 41 consecutive conference matches dating back to the 2017 season and overall has won 41 of its last 42 contest going back to last season.

Junior outside hitter Alison Davenport (Auburn/Auburn Mountainview) had a standout all-around performance with 11 kills and 5 blocks, finishing with a team-high 13.5 points. Redshirt freshman Calley Heilborn (Auburn/Auburn Riverside) added a team-high 12 kills and sophomore Gabby Gunterman (Lake Stevens) anchored the defense with a match-high 13 digs.

Sophomore middle Chloe Roetcisoender (Duvall/Cedar Park Christian) provided a match-high six blocks and had five kills to complete the Vikings dominating effort.

“We did a great job of staying the course and holding off a couple of their runs,” said WWU coach Diane Flick-Williams. “Alison (Davenport) was on fire at the net both blocking and hitting, and that really lifted us tonight.”

Senior libero Mae Thungc (Kent/Kentridge) was injured during the first set and redshirt freshman Kasey Woodruff (University Place/Curtis) replaced her finishing with 6 digs.

The Vikings continue their Oregon road trip, facing Concordia in Portland at 2 p.m. Saturday (GNAC.tv and WWUVikings.com/Live).
