NDSU Volleyball Comeback Falls Short at Omaha, 3-1

OMAHA, Neb. – The North Dakota State volleyball team came up short at Omaha, 3-1, on Saturday afternoon at Baxter Arena.

Ali Hinze notched her ninth double-double of the season with 21 digs and 12 kills. Syra Tanchin connected on a team-high 14 kills, while Kelley Johnson also registered a double-double with a match-high 44 assists and 11 digs. Logan O’Brien led the way on the defensive side totaling a match-high 24 digs.

After dropping the first two frames, NDSU (13-7, 6-2 Summit) battled back in the third set after putting together five unanswered points to steal a 15-12 edge following a block from Michelle Glover and Johnson. The Mavericks (12-7, 7-2 Summit), who have won their last seven matches, then cut the deficit down to one, 24-23, after a kill from McKenna Ruch.
