The Northern Kentucky University volleyball team defeated Kennesaw State University in the final home game of the season on Nov. 3 in four sets (25-17, 20-25, 25-19, 25-23).
The game was also the last game for the six seniors in front of the home crowd.

“It was definitely an emotional game as it was the last home game for our six seniors,” said sophomore Jenna Ruble. “It ended on a really good note for our last game on our home court.”
Ruble had 12 kills in the match including two in a 7-1 run that helped the Norse rally from a 22-18 deficit to claim the fourth set and the match.
“The key was staying together and playing until the last point,” senior Kelly Morrissey said.

Morrissey finished the game with 12 kills and seniors Haley Lippert (13 kills) and Shelby Buschur (10 kills) also had big games on the offensive side of the ball.
Senior Kylee Tarantino led the team on the defensive side with 18 digs, while senior Jenna Schreiver added 12 digs.

The game ended with the six seniors on the floor (Morrissey, Lippert, Buschur, Tarantino, Schreiver and Genny Galfano).

“It was a situation where we wanted our six seniors on the court because they knew what they had to do,” Coach Liz Hart said. “We controlled the ball and ran our offense and we did a good job of that.”
The Norse are now 23-7 on the season, including 10-6 against Atlantic Sun competition. The Norse close out the season in Florida, playing Stetson University on Nov. 9 and Florida Gulf Coast University on Nov. 10.
