The Warhawks won their sixth straight match Sept. 26 at Russell Arena against rival UW-Oshkosh. They finished in three sets with scores of 25-18, 25-23, 25-20.

Head coach Stacy Boudreau was very impressed with her team in the rivalry game.

“We look forward to all of our conference matches,” Boudreau said. “This was a fun one. We had a lot of our student-athletes at the game tonight. We just have to keep doing what we are doing and take one game at a time.”

Junior outside hitter Rachel Butterfield and freshman outside hitter Emma Aske both led the Whitewater offense with nine kills, along with freshman outside hitter Emily Gillen tying her career high in blocks with five.

“It was a team win,” freshman setter KellyAnn Sotiros. “We came together, and we did what we had to do with every person on and off the court.”
