SIOUX CITY, IOWA — The Columbia College volleyball team swept Rocky Mountain College 25-17, 25-12, 25-22 Wednesday during the second day of pool play at the NAIA National Championships.

Vesna Trivunovic led the way for the Cougars with 19 kills on 37 attempts. Setter Paula Ferreira had 42 assists to go along with her seven kills.

The Cougars (39-2) have been focused on performing well at the national championships all season, and head coach Melinda Wrye-Washington is pleased with their performance in the first two matches.

"Our girls investing in the scouting reports and working together is really paying off," Wrye-Washington said in a phone interview. "We've executed game-plans really well."

After dominating the second game, Wrye-Washington said the Cougars let up a bit in the third game but still managed to come out with the three-game victory.

The Cougars wrap up pool play with a match at 3:15 p.m. Thursday against No. 8 Azusa Pacific (29-6).

The top two teams from each pool advance to the single elimination tournament that starts Friday.
