BETHANY, Okla. – Oklahoma Baptist remains unbeaten in Great American Conference matches following a 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-22) sweep of Southern Nazarene at the Sawyer Center Thursday evening.


Trailing 18-20 in the first set, the Lady Bison (8-7, 3-0 GAC) closed out the set on a 7-1 run to take an early 1-0 lead. Nicole Fleitman picked up two kills and assisted on two blocks in the final stretch. Three separate spurts of four straight points from OBU in the second set allowed the Lady Bison to cruise to an 11-point win. Oklahoma Baptist overcame a five-point deficit in the third set to seal the victory.


The Crimson Storm (6-7, 1-1 GAC) were held in check offensively, posting a .000 attack percentage. GAC kills-leader Bailee Turang was held to single-digit kills for just the third time this season, finishing with eight kills.
