Panthers Open Spring Season With Contest At Wisconsin

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's volleyball team opened its 2010 spring schedule with four sets of action against Wisconsin at the UW Fieldhouse Saturday.

The Panthers dropped the first three sets before winning the fourth. The coaches had agreed in advance to play four sets.

Scores were 25-23, 25-17, 25-21, 21-25 in favor of the Badgers.

Jena Berg led Milwaukee with 13 kills and 19 digs. She hit a solid .250 in the contest and was the only Panther player in double figures.

Melissa Jansen came off the bench to add seven kills while hitting .294, while Anna Bartz added 11 digs defensively.

UWM hit just .092 over the four sets, but limited Wisconsin to a .141 hitting clip.

The Panthers play their next spring contest April 1 against Loyola.
