Usually an offensive threat, Rachel Gregg of Eagle River proved she could get the job done on defense as well.

The Lewis-Clark State College sophomore middle hitter enjoyed a big weekend series with 34 digs, four blocks and a .923 reception percentage.

Her effort helped the Warriors upset NAIA ranked teams No. 22 Montana Tech and No. 16 Carroll College.

Gregg, of Chugiak High fame, collected eight digs, two aces and two blocks in a sweep of Montana Tech before notching a career-high 26 digs while playing nearly flawless serve receive and adding two blocks in a five-setter against Carroll.

Earlier this season against Olivet Nazarene, the 6-foot Alaskan slammed a season-high 17 kills.

Overall she has 99 kills in 11 matches.
