Deanna Nielson

In an otherwise forgettable performance by the Gonzaga University volleyball team, Deanna Nielson of Anchorage had a performance to remember.

The freshman setter-turned-hitter delivered a career-high .429 attack percentage during a three-game loss to Santa Clara University.

Nielson, of Dimond High fame, scored points on 4-of-7 swings.

She added a solo block and a dig, accumulated five of her team’s 28 points.
