Dragons senior Laura Tvrdik closing in on 1,000 career kills

Minnesota State Moorhead hosts the Dragon Classic volleyball tournament this weekend at Alex Nemzek Fieldhouse. The Dragons play Adelphi (N.Y.) and Northern State on Friday and the Univerity of Sioux Falls and Minot State on Saturday.

The home tournament is a welcomed change for MSUM, which is coming off a 1-3 start at the Oredigger Classic last weekend in Golden, Colo.

“It will be nice for once to not have to come off an eight-hour bus ride,” said senior outside hitter Ashley Pyfferoen.

Sophomore hitter Heidi Lensing is off to a strong start with a team-high 54 kills through four matches. Senior hitter Laura Tvrdik is closing in on 1,000 career kills. Tvrdik has 968 entering the weekend.
