Ellie Scherffius is in the zone.

The University of Montana volleyball player from Eagle River is crushing the ball at a blistering .415-percent clip that ranks No. 2 in the Big Sky Conference.

Scherffius leads the Grizzlies with 91 kills, buoyed by the strongest stretch of her college career over the last week:

15 kills, .520% Green Bay
13 kills, .455% Drake
10 kills, .529% North Dakota
10 kills, .368% Cal State Bakersfield

Montana is 4-2 when the 6-foot middle blocker out of Chugiak High reaches double figures in kills.

Twice she has collected as many as 15 in a match and earlier this season against Eastern Michigan she banged nine kills on 11 attempts with no errors.
