NORFOLK, NE – A narrow win in the third set led to the Northeast Community College volleyball team sweeping Southeastern Community College (IA) in their home opener here last night. Final scores were 25-16, 25-18 and 27-25.

Samantha Brester tallied ten kills and four solo blocks for Northeast. Taylor Lammers had seven kills, two solo blocks and three assist blocks, while Peyton Roach had three aces serves and 20 digs. Savannah Nelson finished with two ace serves and led assists with 32.
