Addie Oberman led the Rebels with 21 kills, while Breanne Butler added nine and a team-high six blocks. Kelsey Carder led the way with 22 digs. Courtney Stoll recorded 28 assists, 17 digs and seven ace serves, and Tierra Hildebrandt finished with nine kills, 14 digs and seven aces.

Bellevue (4-14) had even distribution of its statistics, led by Ashley Giesemann's 16 kills, Jackie Kremer's 14 assists, Carly Rubel's 15 digs and Maddie Hiland's six service aces.
