Senior middle Erin Gudmundson (Kearney) had a team-high 12 kills and hit .500 while also supplying three aces and two solo blocks.

Junior outside Kelli Bunger (Grand Island) had 10 kills, three digs and two stuffs with senior right side Samantha Harvey (Taylor) providing eight kills and a .500 attack percentage.

Finally, junior outside Ashley Solt (Central City) had four aces, four kills and four digs.
