Sparked by a season-high 21 kills from Hali Wisnoskie the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Volleyball team swept South Alabama for the second straight day at Earl K. Long Gym.
With the 3-0 (25-17, 25-22, 25-17) victory the Ragin’ Cajuns moved to 4-0 on the young 2020 season. It’s the program’s best start since 2014.
Wisnoskie willed Louisiana to a commanding 2-0 lead in the contest, firing off 18 kills on 31 error-free swings (.581) over the first two stanzas combined.
The Columbus, Texas product landed six kills early on in the match with the latter keeping the Ragin’ Cajuns ahead, 12-10, in the first set. In that same frame, the senior outside hitter produced each of the team’s final three points with a kill.
A 10-3 start for the Jaguars to the second had the Ragin’ Cajuns in recovery mode. The bounce back began when Hannah Ramirez served up four straight points to slice the deficit to 10-8. Later on, it was Wisnoskie totaling five of her eight kills in the frame to lift the hosts into a 20-17 lead.
Freshman Taylor Gates delivered three timely kills in the closing moments of the key second set triumph, then sparked a tie-breaking 5-0 run to give Louisiana a commanding 10-5 advantage in the final set. The Jaguars would get no closer than four points the remainder of the contest.
