The Lawrence University volleyball team dropped the first set Wednesday night but roared back to win the next three and beat Marian University 3-1 in a nonconference match at Alexander Gymnasium.

Lawrence (1-4) won the match 20-25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-21.

Clare Bohrer paced the Vikings with 13 kills and Emma Kane added 10. Diane McLeod picked up a match-high 36 assists for Lawrence, and Kathleen Rowland piled up a match-best 22 digs.

The Vikings trailed 15-11 in the second set but scored six of the next seven points to grab a 17-16 edge. The set was tied at 22-22 before Lawrence scored the final three points.

Lawrence ripped off eight consecutive points in the third set to take control with a 21-14 lead. The Vikings then had to rally to win the fourth set. Lawrence trailed 14-11 but scored five straight points, largely behind the serving of Taylor Tomaszewski, to take a 16-14 lead. The Vikings later scored the final four points, including two on Shannon McLain service aces, to close out the set and match.
