Volleyball falls in MIAC finals to St. Olaf

The No. 11 St. Thomas volleyball team was swept 3-0 Saturday by the No. 12 St. Olaf Oles in the MIAC championship match in Northfield.

St. Thomas never led at any point in the night. The top-seeded Oles defeated the Tommies 25-22, 25-18 and 25-22. The loss ends the Tommies’ MIAC win streak of 11 matches.

Senior Emily Foster had 35 assists, three blocks and eight digs for the Tommies. Foster and senior Jill Osborne were two of six players named to the MIAC All-Tournament team.

Despite the defeat, the Tommies are expected to get a bid to the NCAA tournament. The teams will be announced Monday.
