A 13-kill performance by Sierra Nobley paved the way for Boise State’s sweep of Texas A&M Corpus-Christi Friday night in the Bronco’s second match of the Boise State Invitational.

Nobley, a sophomore from Scottsdale, Ariz., led Boise State in kills and attacks with 33, hitting 27.3 percent. Nobley has led the Broncos in kills in each game this season.

Sabryn Roberts was second on the team with 10 kills.

Boise State won the match 25-20, 26-24, 25-17 to notch their first win of the tournament.

“I’m excited to see our girls play with a lot of energy, that’s what we needed to do in response to our tough loss last night,” head coach Shawn Garus said. “I thought our passing was significantly better.”

The Broncos jumped to an early 12-5 lead in the first set, only for the Islanders to stage a comeback to put the score at 13-10. Boise State answered with a rally of their own and never looked back en route to their opening set win.

Boise State and A&M Corpus-Christi traded points throughout the entire second set with no team having a lead greater than two points. The Broncos finally pulled away for the 26-24 win with kills from redshirt-sophomore Kaitlyn Oliver and Nobley.

Oliver finished third on the team with nine kills.

The Broncos led the third set from start to finish, completing the sweep over the Islanders.

Senior Sarah Baugh contributed a team high 43 assists in the win.

Boise State hope to carry the momentum from their win to tomorrow’s tournament finale against Northwestern.

“Very, very good team out of the Big Ten,” Garus said. “They have a couple of big hitters and we’re going to have to be on our game to beat them. Women’s volleyball is all about momentum. Right now we’ve got it, and we need to keep it going into that match tomorrow.”
