Boehmer recorded a match-high 43 assists and set USIís attack to a .295 hitting percentage while Riordan recorded a match and USI career-high 16 kills. Riordan also finished with a match-high .538 attacking percentage and a team-leading 12 digs.
Freshman outside hitter Emily Ryan (Batesville, Indiana) and junior middle blocker Leeanne Gross (Decatur, Indiana) recorded 11 and 10 kills, respectively in the win. Gross chipped in 11 digs.
Prior to the match, the Eagles honored both Boehmer and Riordan as part of USIís Senior Day festivities. The two have helped lead the Eagles to 44-15 overall record and an 18-8 mark against GLVC competition in two seasons as a group.
