MILWAUKEE – Sophomore outside hitter Jenna Reitsma posted a career-high 17 kills as the No. 19 Marquette University women’s volleyball team extended its winning streak to six matches with a five-set win over No. 25 Illinois. 

The Golden Eagles (8-1) picked up their first-ever win over the Illini after falling behind 2-1 following a 25-13 third-set loss. MU rebounded to claim the fourth, 25-19, and hit .500 with 12 kills in a 15-11 fifth-set win.

Reitsma added a team-best three service aces and had 11 kills by the end of the second set with no hitting errors. Yadhira Anchante posted her sixth double-double with a career-high 46 assists and 11 digs. 

Illinois (5-5) hit .241 (56-22-141) and was led by 15 kills from both Kennedy Collins and Raina Terry.

NOTABLE:

  • The win was MU’s first in seven tries against the Illini. Marquette is now 1-6 all-time and dropped the most recent meeting to then-No. 14 Illinois in five sets on Sept. 14, 2019 at Illinois State. MU and U of I have met twice in the NCAA tournament in Champaign in both 2013 and 2018.
  • The Golden Eagles’ last win over a Big Ten squad came at then-No. 4 Wisconsin on Sept. 5, 2019.
  • Sisters of three former Marquette players were across the net on Saturday night. Illinois libero Caroline Barnes is the younger sister of former MU defensive specialist Nicki Barnes (2013-16). Outside hitter Brooke Mosher is the younger sister of former MU outside Madeline Mosher (2016-19) and setter Claire Mosher (2018-21). 

UP NEXT: The Golden Eagles host Illinois State on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Al McGuire Center. The Redbirds claimed the opening two sets of Saturday morning’s match against the Illini and held off U of I in five sets.
