With a host of new faces on the floor this season, the Tigers displayed their bevy of offensive weapons and were led by sophomore Mia Tuman’s 16 kills. Junior Jadyn Perkins and senior Paige Miller added 10 kills each, to go along with six kills from senior Paige Morningstar. Junior Rachel Burton and sophomore Maddie Fickess chipped in with four kills each.

Defensively, sophomore Caroline Curran posted a team-high 12 digs, followed by Tuman, Morningstar and Miller with eight digs each. Perkins helped clog the net with a team-high four blocks. Curran and Miller added two aces in the victory.

Following their season opening win, North Allegheny continues a busy week tonight with a home contest against the Fox Chapel Foxes.
