Anchorage’s Danae Stokes carried the Multnomah University Lions to a four-set win over Warner Pacific in NAIA volleyball.

The 5-foot-9 outside hitter hammered 20 kills for a .239 attack percentage on 46 attempts to finish the match as the top offensive player. She added seven digs and an ace.

She finished one shy of her career high of 21 kills set last season.

Stokes, of Dimond High fame, took over the first set as she provided five kills in a 10-1 run that gave the Lions a commanding 20-12 lead.

In the second set there was a stretch when she scored three consecutive kills.

Stokes has racked up 150 kills in her last 15 matches dating back to last season.
