JEREMIAH NEARS NKU ALL-TIME KILLS RECORD
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Northern Kentucky University volleyball player Jenny Jeremiah, who earned Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Year honors this season, is about to set another school record.
Jeremiah, who earlier this season became NKUs all-time career leader in digs, needs just three kills to become the Norses all-time leader in that category. Jeremiah currently has 1,588 career kills and trails NKU all-time leader Jenny Huber (1,590 career kills from 1984-87)) by just two in that category.
Jeremiah, a graduate of Seton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, will have a chance to break that record when NKU meets the University of North Alabama (35-6) at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2, in the NCAA Division II Elite Eight at Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, Mich.
NKU, now 32-1 with 25 consecutive victories entering the NCAA Division II Elite Eight, is ranked No. 3 nationally. The Norse are making their second straight trip to the Elite Eight, and NKU is looking for its first-ever national championship.
If NKU defeats North Alabama, the Norse would play in the national semifinals on Friday, Dec. 3, at 8:30 p.m. against the winner of the North Dakota State/Brigham Young University-Hawaii match. The national championship match will be played on Saturday, Dec. 4, at a time to be announced.
