By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - In a Mid Alaska Conference Volleyball Contest last night, the North Pole Patriots were able to sweep the Lathrop Malemutes and earn their first conference win of the season in the process.
The Pats won the first set 25-13, the second 25-17, and the third 25-18 to secure their victory.
Kinley Erickson led the Patriots in kills with 9 while Ainsley Smith finished the day with 19 assists.
The win brings the Patriots up to 7-7 overall and 1-3 in conference play.
Although they did defeat Lathrop in the Patty Center earlier this year, that contest didn't count towards conference records.
Lathrop now falls to 4-7 overall and they are also 1-3 in the MAC.
Lathrop will now head down to the Mat-Su Valley for a matchup against Colony tomorrow while North Pole is off until they host the Malemutes in a rematch early next week.
