ST. LOUIS - Lindsey Dinkelacker registered a double-double of 13 kills and 10 digs, but Southern Illinois toppled Saint Louis 25-22, 21-25, 25-12, 25-14 Saturday afternoon in the Active Ankle Challenge at Chaifetz Pavilion.

Megan Gilbert collected nine kills and hit .368 (9-2-19) for the Billikens (1-4), while Grace Bonoma turned in a match-high 12 digs. Carly Marcum and Cassie Clarke had three blocks and 35 assists, respectively.

A 6-1 Southern Illinois run turned a 12-11 deficit into a 17-13 Saluki lead in set one. Saint Louis narrowed the gap to 18-17 and later to 23-22, but SIU (4-1) held on for a three-point win.

Set two was tied 11 times before SLU took the lead for good at 14-13. After the Bills built the advantage to 19-15, the Salukis pulled to within a point on three occasions, the last time 22-21. However, Saint Louis was able to close out the set and even the match.

Southern Illinois grabbed a 5-0 lead in set three and never looked back. Set four was knotted 9-9 before a 10-1 outburst put the Salukis in command.

Laura Thole led four Southern Illinois players in double figures with a match-high 14 kills. Mary Bogdanski and Bailey Yeager tallied 11 digs apiece, and Taylor Pippen registered a match-high five blocks.
