NORFOLK, Neb. — After a Tuesday night trip east to Ottumwa for a 3-0 win over Indian Hills, the Southwestern volleyball bus headed west Wednesday for another nonconference matchup at Northeast Nebraska.
The Spartans had similar results, taking a 26-24, 25-15, 25-17 victory.
Jenna Casey smacked 12 kills to lead the Spartans. Alex Duffy also had a big night at the net with three blocks and 10 kills. Cassidy Yong set 38 assists.
Allyson Kocour was perfect in 12 serves and Molly Schimp totaled 20 digs.
