LINDSBORG — Bethany College’s volleyball victory over York College on Wednesday doesn’t count for this year’s conference record, but it will next year.

York, which becomes eligible in the KCAC next year, received a rude indoctrination from the Swedes, who were a 3-0 winner.

Bethany won 25-20, 25-22 and 25-21 to even its record at 1-1.

“This was a very good win for us as a team on our home court," Bethany coach Cheri Lindsay said. "The passing and defense made this win possible for us. With the good passing we were able to run our offense effectively. We still have a lot to work on, but I am very proud of them.”

Nikita Nelson had a huge night for the Swedes with 14 kills and 13 digs. Leila Whaley checked in with 24 assists and Eileen Vlamis added 16. Conner Stolley’s 15 digs were tops.

Bethany opens KCAC play for real on Wednesday when it travels to intracounty rival McPherson College for a 7 p.m. dual with the Bulldogs at the Sport Center.
