NAMPA, Idaho - Alaska Anchorage's Julia Mackey blasted a match-high 15 kills Thursday but it was not enough against a balanced Northwest Nazarene attack as the host Crusaders earned a 20-25, 25-23, 25-22, 25-23 volleyball victory at the Johnson Sports Center.

The Seawolves (16-9, 11-6 GNAC) also got a season-high 13 kills from senior Nikkie Viotto, while freshman Sarah Johnson had nine kills and 16 digs in the loss.

The Crusaders (14-14, 7-10) were led by 10 kills apiece from Carly Dranginis and Becky Flores, plus nine each from Elayna Rice and Michelle Terpstra, as they avenged a 5-set loss in Anchorage on Sept. 15.

UAA trailed throughout the first set before catching fire late and erasing a 20-18 deficit with the last seven points, including a thundering kill by Mackey on set point.

But it was the Crusaders who came up with the key points in the next three frames and used a 4-0 run to end it after trailing 23-21 in the fourth.

The Seawolves conclude their 2012 campaign Saturday when they travel to regionally ranked Central Washington. First serve in Ellensburg is set for 7 p.m.
