After winning the first two sets but dropping the third and fourth against the Yellowjackets, Chadron State responded with a fifth set victory and the match 25-23, 25-16, 20-25, 23-25, 15-13.
CSC had three different players record double-digit kills. Sophomore Aracely Hernandez hit .300 with 15 kills, Senior Shelby Schouten recorded 14 kills with an attack percentage of .314 and Greiman finished with 11.

"Our effort, resilience and energy was key this weekend, I thought we improved set by set," Stadler said. "There are still a few things that I would like to see cleaned up on our end but overall I think we had a great start to the season."
