PERU – Following its five-set win over MidAmerica Nazarene (MNU) (Kan.) in Olathe, Kan., last Friday night, another Peru State volleyball player became the NAIA leader in a particular stats category.
Senior middle blocker Nadja Janjevic (Podgorica, Montenegro) had fifteen total blocks and took over the season lead in that category. The previous best was 13 total blocks which had been reached by six different NAIA players earlier in the season.
Peru State topped MNU 20-25, 25-22, 25-18, 19-25, 16-14 to gain the much-needed win. As a team, Peru State had 30 total blocks – four of which were solo. Janjevic was credited with three solo blocks and 12 block assists to set the NAIA best mark so far.
A week earlier, teammate Claire Cudney (Marysville, Kan.) had become the season leader in the digs category as she had 51 in a five-set win over visiting Mount Mercy (Iowa).
The Bobcats will be in action, Thursday night, Oct. 25, when they host Culver-Stockton (Mo.) in their Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink night. The contest with the Wildcats begins at 7 p.m.
