Chanel Madson helped the Chargers open up the first set when she went back to serve at 15-12 and never looked back. Madson served out the rest of the set for a 25-12 win with her unpredictable- serve place- ment and tempo. The Chargers went on to take the second two sets 25-17, 25-23. Six of Madson's 27 serves were aces. Chanel also added 5 kills, 7 serve receptions and 15 digs to the books. Another spot on serve receiver for the match was Tayior Elzenga with 9 ups. Elzenga was also tough at the net getting 13 kills and one solo block. In the back row Elzenga had 3 ace serves and 15 digs.

Steve LeBoutillier and Carolyn Enstad tied for first place with 16 right but Steve won the tie breaker with the exact score of the Vikings game. The Chargers racked up another victory with a 27-6 win over GHECML. The Gophers dropped their game against Cal. The Vikings got off to a slow start in the first half but ended up out pacing the the Lions 27-13. It seems like the Vikes don't get focused until the second half. I guess if they can keep it close in the first half and get it together in the second I'm OK with that. The Gophers just need to get a little more consis- tency, and they will probably be all right.
