PORTLAND - Meagan Ganzer's 16 kills and six blocks led the Washington State volleyball team to a 25-17, 25-21, 25-20 win over Nevada Friday morning at the University of Portland Nike Invitational the Chiles Center.
WSU, now 3-1, relied on its lone senior, Ganzer who hit .343 for the match and landed a pair of aces, and on junior Rachel Todorovich who provided seven kills and hit .375. Setter Camryn Irwin had 31 assists and two aces. Marcelina Glab contributed five blocks and Maile Scarpino subbed in to add two aces. Libero Shawna Lum led the match with 10 digs.
Nevada, 0-4, was led by 10 kills from both Janella Batista and Tessa Lea'ea but struggled offensively as the Wolf Pack hit a mere .126. Tatiana Santiago had 24 assists and the team-leading nine digs. Erin Garvey, Batista and Lea'ea each had three blocks.
"I thought we did a good job this morning especially with Rachel and Meagan again hitting over .300," Cougar Head Coach Jen Greeny said. "We have to get our passing a little bit better so that we can get other people involved in the offense. We have to remember that we have four matches this weekend and we have to keep some of our big hitters fresh."
Washington State meets host University of Portland (2-2) at 7:30 p.m. Friday night at the Chiles Center.
