In her college debut, Foley hit a remarkable .519 with 77 kills and just seven hitting errors with seven total blocks in 14 games.

She hit .719 with 24 kills in a four-game win over No 25-ranked and previously-unbeaten St. Scholastica.

The Tommies also scored 3-0 wins over Loras and UW-LaCrosse and a 3-1 victory over Nebraska Wesleyan.

St. Thomas plays next Friday and Saturday in the Augsburg tournament, then opens its home and conference season Sept. 14 against Gustavus.
