GREAT FALLS--The Argos were a completely different team Saturday. Coming off a disappointing home loss on Thursday, the Argos responded with a 3-0 (25-12, 25-14, 25-21) victory over Montana Western.

"Tonight was awesome," head coach Arunas Duda said. "You saw the chemistry come back, you saw people be selfless on the court. I was very proud of them."

Kelsey Shaver led the Argos with 14 kills. Cassie Thompson finished with 8 kills, Paige Dixon had 7 and Ember Schwindt finished with 6. Shaver led the team with a .407 hitting percentage, followed by Dixon with .400 and Thompson with a .318. Renae Davis and Cydney Finberg-Roberts both finished with 18 assists. Four Argos ended in double-figures. Averi Dyer led the team with 20, followed by Sacha Legros (14), Kelsey Shaver (13) and Cassie Thompson (10).

"We were able to control the serve and receive battle and we passed really well," Duda said. "Some of the new players who haven't seen much of the court this year stepped up and did an awesome job."

The Argos will travel to Des Moines, Iowa next week for the Grand View Tournament. The Argos will face off against Ottawa University on Oct. 10 at 11 a.m.
