PAINESVILLE, OHIO -- The Lake Erie College volleyball team received a rude welcome from host Wayne State University in its Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) opener Friday night (Sept. 10), as the Warriors swept the Storm in three games.

Offensively, the Storm (3-3, 0-1 GLIAC) struggled with a -.145 hitting percentage and had just 11 kills on the night as a team.  Freshman Jamie Hoppe (Green Springs, Ohio/Clyde) and junior Michelle Naab (North Royalton, Ohio/North Royalton) each had three kills to lead Lake Erie.
