Although it was senior night, freshman outside hitter Ivana Jeremic led the way to a Sun Devil victory. She finished the night with a career high 21 kills and boasted an impressive .409 hitting percentage.
Alongside Jeremic, junior middle blocker Oluoma Okaro had 20 kills in a big night for the Sun Devils. Sophomore setter Kylie Pickrell notched the 10th most assists in a match during the rally scoring era for a Sun Devil with 64.
Both Jeremic and Okaro are back to play in a Sun Devil uniform this upcoming season. Pickrell has since transferred to play volleyball at North Carolina State.
The Sun Devils will feature a roster next season that brings in a lot of new faces as the turn around in Tempe continues.
