NU volleyball downs Del Oro in league match

The Nevada Union girls volleyball team tallied its first Sierra Foothill League win Monday, topping Del Oro in the Albert Ali Gymnasium in four sets, 25-15, 25-22, 14-25, 25-18.

Leading the Lady Miners was senior Emily Segel with 13 kills and four aces. Katie Johnson added seven kills, Hannah Bryant pounded down six kills, and Melanie O’Brien finished with five kills. NU’s senior setter Lindsay Meyer had a team-high 20 assists to go with five aces.

Nevada Union is now 13-6 overall and 1-2 in the SFL. The Lady Miners take on Roseville Wednesday at home.
