Hanah Blume’s wasn’t supposed to play Saturday, not after injuring her ankle against San Diego State on Thursday. But she made her return to the lineup count in a big way, reaching the 1,000 kill mark and 1,000 dig mark in a 25-21, 25-20, 21-25, 13-25, 15-12 win over UNLV.
Blume had a double-double for the Spartans (8-17, 5-9), with 18 kills and 19 digs, to help the Spartans extend their win streak to three matches. She joins Joslynn Gallop (1,966 kills, 1,052 digs; 1997-2000), Dawnis Wilson (1,426 kills, 1,412 digs; 1988-91) and Barbara Higgins (1,237 kills, 1,039 digs; 1984-87) as the only other Spartans to reach that mark.
Cori O’Donoghue had 26 digs for San Jose State, Michaela Leonard also had a double-double with 65 assists and 11 digs to go along with three block, and Mary Alice O’Reilly added 18 kills.
San Jose State is next in action Thursday at Utah State.
