WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — The No. 16 Purdue volleyball team (15-5, 7-4 Big Ten) defeated Indiana (12-12, 1-10 Big Ten) in three sets (25-16, 25-12, 25-20) to earn a season sweep of the Hoosiers for the seventh consecutive year.

Junior Caitlyn Newton guided the commanding Boilermaker offense with 15 kills. Sophomore Grace Cleveland followed with 12 kills on 19 swings for a team-best .579 hitting % on the night. Freshman Emma Ellis registered seven kills, while redshirt senior Blake Mohler put five kills.
