BOISE, Idaho - Alyssa Gammel recorded 11 kills to lead Boise State to a season ending victory with a sweep (25-11, 25-20, 25-19) over Nevada in a Mountain West volleyball match in Bronco Gym. Boise State opened the contest in commanding fashion with a 14-point win in set one, then never let up as the Broncos swept the Wolf Pack in straight sets. The win was the second of the year over Nevada as the Broncos finish the season at 14-16 overall and 8-12 in conference.
Boise State stormed out to a dominating win in the opening set as the Broncos led from the first serve to the end to take the 25-11 victory. The last two sets were closer but each time Boise State slowly pulled away down the stretch for the wins.
Gammel led the Broncos with 11 kills while hitting 20 percent. Taylor Murphey and Katelyn Kinghorn were right behind her with nine kills and one block each. Sarah Horton closed her Bronco career on senior night with six kills, one service ace and a team second-best nine digs. Fellow senior Casey Rose added a team-high 21 assists to go with two service aces and two digs. Sarah Baugh finished with 19 assists, one kill, two aces and four digs, while Hannah Hubbard had the team high in digs with 12.
