Koralewski, Welter lead Norse to 3-0 victory over Quincy

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Kristin Koralewski and Cammi Welter combined for 23 kills Friday night as the Northern Kentucky University volleyball team defeated Quincy University, 30-24, 30-18, 30-24, in Regents Hall.

Koralewski finished with 12 kills, nine digs, two service aces and a .500 hitting percentage as NKU extended its win streak to nine and improved to 16-7 overall. The Norse are 9-2 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and in sole possession of first place in the league standings.

Welter converted 11 of 14 attack attempts with no errors for a .786 hitting percentage as the Norse totally dominated Quincy (10-10, 4-5 GLVC) at the net. Maggie Pugh added nine kills, four blocks and a .563 hitting percentage for the Norse.

Sara Taylor, who ranks No. 2 nationally in Division II in assists with 13.84 apg, added 41 assists Friday. Taylor also had seven digs and a service ace for the Norse, who own a 16-1 lead in the all-time series with Quincy.

NKU is seeking its sixth consecutive GLVC championship. If NKU earns the No. 1 seed in the GLVC Tournament, the Norse will play host to that event Nov. 14-16 in Regents Hall.

NKU will travel to Frankfort, Ky., on Saturday to play non-conference matches against the University of Charleston (W. Va.) and Kentucky State University.
