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.

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.”
