NU volleyball cleans up Yuba City

Nevada Union’s volleyball team kept its Metro Conference record spotless with a Thursday night win over Yuba City, 15-1, 15-2, 15-6.

“It was kind of a rollercoaster week for us,” NU volleyball coach Bob Rogers said. “Nikki Maves was cleared to join the team and played today, but Nicki Serr and Meredith Ely both were out with injuries.”

The win improved the Miners’ record to 15-1 overall, and 5-0 in the Metro Conference.

Senior Deann New had nine digs and no errors during the course of Thursday’s match. Elena Schmidt and Ali Daley each had five kills, while Jessica Howell added four.

Erin Zajac went on an 11-point service game to open the first game. The run included three aces.

NU will join Bear River Saturday at the 20-team Sacramento State tournament.
