Western boys top Peru in MIC soccer.

Northwestern’s volleyball squad enjoyed a strong all-around performance in a straight-set win at Peru Wednesday night, 25-21, 25-20, 27-25, to even its record at 7-7 on the season and at 2-2 in Mid-Indiana Conference play.

Hannah Ballard led the victory charge with 15 kills and 20 digs. Kristin Ireland led a strong service effort with 12 points and four aces, and also added 13 digs. Emily Harshman stuffed the stat line with 10 points, three aces, 36 digs and 10 assists. Kelsey Richards added nine points and five aces. Alexis Brown added five kills, while Leslie Samuel and Whitney Zeck each added three kills. Sydney Zeck distributed 24 assists in the win for the Purple Tigers.

“It was a good, tough match,” Northwestern coach Trina Yager said. “We had a lot of good, long volleys. The girls really played well on both sides [Wednesday] night. It was a good competitive game. Our kids communicated well, and did a really nice job of covering the court.”
