SACRAMENTO, Calif.-- UND extended its winning streak to six straight, staying perfect in Big Sky Conference play with a 3-1 win over Sacramento State on Saturday afternoon.

"We got a nice lift from Candice Yager and Emily Thompson today," UND coach Ashley Hardee said. "It's a long season and we have to continue to get better every day."

It was another solid hitting performance by UND, finishing at a .336 clip, coming off its .500 performance in the sweep of North Dakota State on Monday. Included in that percentage Saturday was a fourth-set effort of .410 (20 kills, 4 errors, 39 attempts).
