WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.

The Boilermakers hit .405 in the victory and held the Scarlet Knights to a .134 hitting percentage in their second straight sellout.

The Boilermakers came out firing on all cylinders, hitting .588 while siding out 83-percent of the time to take the first set against the Scarlet Knights.

In the final stanza, Purdue finished off the Scarlet Knights by hitting .455 with 17 kills to earn the 25-16 victory.

Danielle Cuttino led the Boilermakers with 10 kills, a .333 hitting percentage and a pair of blocks but Azariah Stahl and Sherridan Atkinson led Purdue with 12.5 points each in the contest. They each registered eight kills with Atkinson adding four services aces and a block to go along with her .400 hitting percentage while Stahl registered an ace and five blocks. Blake Mohler turned in another stellar performance, hitting .778 with eight kills on nine swings and just one error to complement her two blocks. Caitlyn Newton, Ashley Evans, Erin Williams and Jena Otec accounted for the other nine kills by the Boilermakers and combined for a .533 hitting percentage.
