A week after opening up its season at the MIAA Relays, the Calvin men’s swim and dive team hosted Grand Valley State for their it’s first dual meet of the season. The Knights were able to get off to a quick start as they were able to take first and third place in the 200 Yard Medley Relay, the first event of the night. Unfortunately for the Knights, it was not until the diving that they would capture another top spot. Sophomore Andrew Krafft dove like he was in mid-season form, though, setting two pool records as well as making two NCAA cuts. In the 1 meter diving, Krafft finished with a final score of 328.85, more than 70 points ahead of second place. The 3 meter dive seemed to be almost a replica performance as Krafft racked up 329.35 points, more than 85 points ahead of second place.

By winning the National Championship last season and maintaining a spotless record thus far in 2011, the Knights have had to rely on contributions from a number of different players. One key cog to the highly effective machine that is this year’s Calvin squad is junior Lizzie Kamp. She is currently averaging 3.21 kills-per-set along with an attack percentage of .360. A native of Orland Park, Illinois, Kamp followed her older sister Rebecca [Kamp] to Calvin and to the volleyball team here. Calvin seemed the natural choice for her not only from a volleyball standpoint, but also because of Calvin’s strong emphasis on faith.

ALMA, MI – The Calvin College women’s volleyball team came to Alma’s Art Smith Arena with its perfect season on the line. The Knights first squared off against the Scots of Alma College. Almost a month ago, the Calvin rolled over Alma 25-14, 25-17, 25-13. This time around, each team would be without a key player; sophomore outside hitter Megan Korber for Calvin and sophomore setter Erika VanHavel for Alma. The result, however, was the same. Alma failed to score 15 points in any set as Calvin downed the Scots by scores of 25-12, 25-14, 25-12. The Knights took the court three hours later against the Finlandia University Lions. The match was over very quickly. It took the Calvin just 44 minutes to dismantle the Lions in straight sets by scores of 25-7, 25-5, 25-4. Top-ranked Calvin (26-0, 13-0 MIAA) returns to action this Wednesday when the Trine Thunder come to the Van Noord Arena.< 1 2 3 4 > Last »
