A balanced attack by the University of Wisconsin-Platteville volleyball team led the Pioneers to a 25-15, 25-11, 25-20 win over host UW-Superior on Friday night.

The Pioneers (20-13, 4-3 WIAC) were led by sophomore Stephanie Kirchner, who had a team-high 15 digs and seven kills in the win as well as freshman LeeAnn Mizgalski had a match-high 10 kills. In the win, the Pioneers out hit the Yellowjackets by a .224 to a .089 margin. After eight attack errors in the first set, UW-Platteville had just two in the second set and four in the third and deciding set.

In addition to its strong play on the offensive side, the Pioneer frontline posted 12 block assists, including five from Kirchner.

The Yellowjackets (15-17, 1-6 WIAC) had three different players with six kills to lead UW-Superior.

The Pioneers wrap up the regular season with a matchup on Saturday at noon against UW-Eau Claire.
