The Tigers received a strong performance from senior Chelsee Marvin (Crete, Neb.) as she finished with 24 kills and a .444 attack percentage. Terra Andreasen (Bellevue, Neb.) added 16 kills while Jessy Livers (Lincoln, Neb.) posted 10. Kellie Peterson (Ord, Neb.) and Lisa Lord (Indianola, Neb.) notched seven apiece.
