Raiders record sixth straight win

SALEM — The 10th-ranked Southern Oregon volleyball team skated by Corban Friday at the C.E. Jeffers Center, winning its sixth straight overall by scores of 25-16, 25-11, 25-19.

One of Motade Atanda’s sharpest matches of the season resulted in 18 kills on 34 swings and seven digs. Paulla Pinheiro went for 10 kills and five digs for the Raiders, who improved to 16-3 overall and 10-1 in the Cascade Conference for the first time since 2010.

Corban (5-14, 2-10), which has dropped 24 straight against SOU, never led in the first or third sets and walked into a .010 attacking average — the second lowest by a Raider opponent this season. The Warriors totaled 24 kills, led by Sloane Morrison’s six, and SOU had 43.

The Raiders, set up by Lauren McGowne’s 34 assists, were only blocked four times. Emma Gasman had six kills and assisted three of SOU’s eight blocks.

Brookelynn Cole and Tyana Andrews steered the back row with dig totals of 14 and 13. The Raiders conceded just two service aces.

In six sets this season, the Raiders outscored Corban 150-85.
