Valparaiso moved one step closer to reaching the 20-win plateau for the tenth straight season, defeating Chicago State 3-1 (25-22, 25-22, 19-25, 25-14) Tuesday evening in Chicago, Ill.

Senior Jenny Pokorny (Geneva, Ill./Geneva) picked up a double-double over the four sets, handing out 40 assists and registering 11 digs.  Pokorny also set a season high with five blocks at the net, while Dent and sophomore Janelle Hobbs (Hartland, Wis./Arrowhead) both were in on four of Valpo’s 12 team rejections.  Junior Taylor Root (Jenison, Mich./Jenison) led all players with 26 digs, while sophomore Sarah Dooms (Greenwood, Ind./Center Grove) matched Pokorny with 11 digs.

Alexandra Mason led Chicago State (2-27) with a match-high 17 kills and also added 12 digs.  Mysta Townsell recorded 24 digs to lead the Cougars, and Sydney Van Munster led all players with seven blocks.
