Liz Amici (Sr.-Whitewater, Wis.) led the Blugolds in kills for the match. She recorded eight on 11 attempts, which boosted her hitting percentage to .636.

Emily Neave (Jr.-Salem, Wis./Westosha Central) tallied a team-high 15 digs and also made 26 of the Blugolds' 28 set assists. Lauren Sutherland (So.-Dayton, Minn./Meadow Creek Christian) and  Kelly Schuh (So.-Appleton, Wis./Hortonville) also racked up 13 and 10 digs, respectively.
