Andrea Lanham

INDIANAPOLIS - Emeral Holladay finished with 20 kills and a .714 hitting percentage as Indianapolis defeated Northern Kentucky University, 30-27, 30-20, 20-30, 30-19, Saturday afternoon at the Ruth Lilly Fitness Center.

Alyssa Carlotta added 11 kills for Indianapolis, which improved to 22-11 overall, 11-3 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. Indianapolis also snapped NKU’s winning streak at five matches and avenged a five-game setback to the Norse earlier this season at Highland Heights, Ky.

Tristen Dye led NKU (23-6 overall, 11-4 GLVC) with 15 kills, while teammate Liz Holmes added 12 kills and 14 digs. The Norse committed 37 attacking errors and hit just .142 for the match.

Junior setter Andrea Lanham recorded a triple-double for the Norse with 42 assists, 10 kills and 11 digs. Lanham, a Notre Dame Academy graduate, also moved into third place in career assists at NKU with 3,283.

NKU jumped out to a 19-12 lead in the opening game, but Indianapolis responded with a 14-3 run to take a 26-22 advantage and would eventually post a 30-27 win. The Greyhounds also took the second game (30-20), but NKU countered by winning the third stanza, 30-20.

Indianapolis, however, hit .303 in the fourth game and held NKU to a .094 attacking clip. Holladay, a 6-foot-3 junior middle hitter, ended the match by posting her 20th kill without an error.

NKU’s final two home matches of the season will be this week against Kentucky Wesleyan (Friday at 7 p.m.) and West Virginia State (Saturday at 2 p.m.). The Friday match will also be Senior Night for NKU volleyball players Lynne Fischesser and Julie Lewis.

NKU begins play at the GLVC Tournament on Nov. 10 at the site of the No. 1 seed. Rockhurst leads the GLVC with a 13-1 record and will likely host the event at Kansas City, Mo.
