Lake Forest then defeated Macalester College 3-1 and racked up 43 kills, including seven from Donnelly. Lake Forest scored the final three points of the contest with Donnelly serving, a run that included her fourth and final ace of the match.
On Tuesday, the Foresters picked up their fourth win of the season, prevailing 3-1 against Alverno College. Donnelly had eight kills and a .375 kill percentage on the night.
Donnelly leads the team with 29 blocks this season and ranks second with 74 kills an third with a dozen aces.
