Teammate Brianna Ecker is second on the team in kills with 77, but leads her team in assists and service aces. Ecker is third in the conference in assists with 236 and fourth in the ACAA in service aces at 35.

MMU Soccer returns to the pitch on Saturday against Finlandia. The conference opponent is 8-3-1 on the season with wins over Grace Christian and Eureka. MMU defeated the Red Devils in September and are 0-2 against GCU this season.
