The undefeated season continues for Quincy.

Opposite Rae Alleyne led all players with a season-high 22 kills on a .447 attack percentage as Quincy swept Missouri S&T 25-21, 25-23, 25-15 on Tuesday in Quincy, Illinois.

Alleyne had at least seven kills in all three games to help the Hawks (4-0, 0-0 MIVA) secure their fourth consecutive win to open the season. The All-MIVA selection had a game-high eight kills in the final game, including a kill during a 6-1 run to close out the match.

Alleyne entered this non-conference match in the nation’s top 10 with a 3.78 kills per game average. In addition, the opposite now has more than a .400 attack percentage in three consecutive matches.


Along with the offensive performance, Alleyne had a match-high three blocks against Missouri S&T (3-3).

Alleyne had back-to-back blocks as part of a 6-0 run in the second game that erased a 21-17 deficit. The opposite also had a kill to set up the game-winning point and then two players later had the game-winning kill to avoid overtime.

Setter Dylan Feely guided the Quincy offense to out-hit Missouri S&T .286 to .090. The Hawks won the match, despite Alleyne being the only Quincy player to have more than five kills.

Three Hawks had multiple aces and finished with eight aces – four more aces than the Miners.

Missouri S&T outside attacker Nate Meyre in the loss had a team-high 10 kills, while Aaron Sallade added nine kills.

Quincy with this victory remains one of five undefeated teams in the nation. This is also the best start to the season for Hawks since they won 10 consecutive matches to open the 2012 season.
