Nicki Derrick finished with six kills and Halli Vaughn had five kills for the Warriors (22-9). Rilie-Jo Olds contributed five aces and Samantha MacDowell chipped in eight digs and four aces.

"We had a nice, loud crowd tonight. The girls played steady and calm," N.D. coach Emily Reed said. "We served really tough."
