Nevada Union tops Yuba City in four games

The Nevada Union varsity girls volleyball team picked up another win Thursday, this time at Yuba City, by scores of 25-17, 22-25, 25-11, 25-20.

The victory was not easy relative to previous Metro Conference games. That fact was highlighted by a rare loss in game two.

“They just really hustled and made us earn everything we got all night,” said NU head coach Bob Rogers.

In the fourth game the Honkers jumped out to a 7-2 lead, but after a Nevada Union timeout, the offense got back on track.

Ali Daley led the Miners 16-0 overall, 5-0 Metro Conference) offensively with 32 kills.

Stephanie Bayne was a distant second with 11 kills. Julie Wivholm chipped in eight kills. Alicia Landon added seven more.

Even better competition is expected today and Saturday when NU travels to San Jose in the Archbishop Mitty Tournament.
