Josie Schumann again led the team in both kills and blocks, tallying six in each category. She also totaled five digs. Sam Swanson led the Rebels in assists with eight, while also recording two kills and one dig. The digs leader was Melany Ehlert with seven.

Also contributing for the Rebels were Kiera Schultz with one kill and one block; Kylie Niebuhr with four digs; Dani Kirkeide with five digs and Hannah Olson with three digs and two aces.

The Rebels fall to 2-4 on the season and will play again Saturday afternoon when they host the Wolverines of Glenville-Emmons.
