MOORHEAD, Minn. (9/04/09)-- Concordia cruised to a pair of 3-0 wins on Friday in the first day of the annual Cobber Invite. The Cobbers downed Presentation 25-9, 25-11, 25-17 in the first match of the day and then came back to sweep Valley City State 25-16, 25-18, 25-14 in the nightcap. The two wins were the first of the year for the Cobbers and improved their season record to 2-1 on the year.

In the match against Presentation, Concordia was led by Jenna Green who had six kills. Freshman Danelle Loomis had 12 assists while sophomore Amy Sykora countered with 11. Greta Wood had a team-high 12 digs.

The Cobbers took control of the match after the first eight points of game 1. With Concordia leading 5-3, CC rattled off five straight points and then 18 of the next 21 points to pull away and come away with the 16-point win. The momentum carried over into the second game where the Cobbers built a 15-3 lead and put it in cruise control for the remainder of the game. The final game turned in the middle when Concordia held a four-point lead at 14-10 and then kept the margin right there until the very end.

Vohnoutka came up with seven kills and nine digs and Green had a match-high 13 kills and 10 digs. Sophomore setter Sykora had the best all-around match of the night.
