Ericson leads Wolf Pack to tournament title

It only seemed right to give Teal Ericson the Most Valuable Player award at the University of Nevadas AT&T Invitational volleyball tournament Sunday in Reno.The North Tahoe High product blasted 21 kills to lift Nevada over Pacific to win the three-day tournament. The Wolf Pack (4-1) swept the Tigers in straight games, 30-25, 30-25 and 30-28, before 263 fans at the Virginia Street Gym. Ericson, a 2004 North Tahoe graduate, delivered 43 kills in two tournament matches. Im trying to step up and take a leadership role. Thats what I’ve been doing, said Ericson, who led her team for the fifth consecutive time in kills.Nine of Ericsons kills against Pacific came in the second game and she had back-to-back kills to break a 30-30 tie and close out the Wolf Packs victory in game three. The 6-foot-1 junior outside hitter had 22 kills and four blocks against Montana. Nevada hosts Sacramento State tonight at 7 p.m.
