NKU took on their second home game of the weekend against Jacksonville University, winning in a quick match 3-0.

NKU would start off the first set strong winning 25-13, never allowing the Dolphins to take the lead.

Megan Wanstrath would go out of the game in the first half with an apparent knee injury, never returning to the game.

The second set would prove tough for the Norse as they would struggle to keep the score even against the Dolphins. However NKU would take the set 25-23.

The third set would resemble much of the first in NKU’s dominance on the court, as they would take the final set of the afternoon 25-13.

NKU closed out the match with a .396 hitting percentage, with Taylor Snyder leading the team at .750 and Jenna Ruble at .652.

The Norse closed the game with only six attack errors.

“The girls played really well today,” NKU Head Coach Elizabeth Hart said after the game. “I thought we were really aggressive. We got eight or nine aces. Offensively we had six hitting errors the entire match and close to 400 as a team. We just played really well today.”

NKU takes to the road for two games before returning home Oct. 24 to take on Lipscomb University for Alumni Night.
