BYU volleyball squad floors Air Force women

PROVO — As expected, the BYU women's volleyball team served up an easy victory over Air Force at the Smith Fieldhouse Friday night.

The Cougars recorded a season-high 13 service aces en route to a 3-0 (30-19, 30-13, 30-15) sweep against the Falcons.

"Consistency in the things we can control is key," said coach Jason Watson. "Our serving is a big factor that we could control and dictate. We did a nice job. From that standpoint, we were pleased."

Junior middle blocker Rachel Dyer tallied a personal best with three aces in the match. "I was very happy with my serves," she said. "I've been working on it a lot, and it's nice to see a little payoff tonight."

Senior outside hitter Chelsea Goodman had a team-high four aces and sophomore Stephanie Lau added three.

With the win, BYU's record improved 14-6 overall and 6-4 in Mountain West Conference play. Air Force dropped to 7-17 overall and 0-11 in the MWC.

The Cougars held the Falcons to a minus-.072 hitting percentage, marking the first time this season they have limited an opponent to a negative percentage. BYU's offense hit at a .235 clip.

Goodman led the Cougar attack with 10 kills while adding eight digs.

Dyer added nine kills while Erica Lott had seven.

BYU hosts Wyoming tonight at 7.
