The volleyball team extended its winning streak to 12 with a string of four road victories last week. The team finished the Hall of Fame Tournament at Mount Holyoke with a perfect 3-0 record before heading to Colby to defeat the Mules 3-1 in a non-conference match. 
The action leaves 22nd-ranked Bowdoin with a 24-2 record overall.
Last weekend’s play began with a  dominant 3-0 victory over Tufts with set scores of 25-9, 25-21 and 25-22. 
Outside hitter Melissa Haskell ’13 led the team offensively while Ellie Brennan ’14 notched nine kills of her own. 
The climax of the weekend came on Saturday, with Bowdoin defeating highly-ranked MIT 3-1. The team won the first two sets with relative ease, 25-18, 25-19, before dropping the fiercely fought third set 24-26. The Polar Bears then came back to clinch the victory with a 25-21 win in the fourth.
Christy Jewett ’16 had 10 kills while Hilary Cederna ’13 racked up nine. Haskell came away with nine kills and 13 digs. 
Later that afternoon, Bowdoin cruised to an easy 3-0 win over Wheaton College with set scores of 25-16, 25-16 and 25-9. 
Luisa Lasalle ’14 shone against Wheaton, getting 11 kills.
The Polar Bears traveled to Waterville last Tuesday night, where they defeated the Mules 3-1 on their home turf with set scores of 20-25, 25-18, 25-20 and 25-19. 
After dropping the first set Bowdoin picked up the second and third before falling behind 14-12 in the fourth. The team tied everything up at 15 before they were able to run away with the set and clinch the victory.
Both Tory Edelman ’13 and Hilary Cederna ’13 had 11 kills against Colby while Taylor Vail ‘14 posted 20 digs. 
Edelman discussed the importance of the upcoming weekend, where the Polar Bears could lock-down hosting the NESCAC tournament if they beath both Middlebury and Wesleyan.  
“Hosting the tournament isn’t everything but it’s a huge advantage, and we loved hosting last year, so there’s definitely a lot of pressure for the weekend,” said Edelman. “We’ve been playing really well lately though and I’m confident in the team’s ability to pull it out.” 
The team heads to Middlebury for two NESCAC matches this weekend. The Polar Bears will face off against the Panthers at 8 p.m. tonight before taking on the Williams’ Ephs at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
