On the week, Neumeyer had 36 kills, an average of 4.5 per set, and hit .319. She also picked up three aces, 28 digs and three blocks.

In a 3-0 win over Knox, she collected 16 kills, passing 1,000 in the process, and hit .368. She also collected three aces and 11 digs. In a 3-2 win over Monmouth in which the Vikings rallied from a 2-0 deficit, Neumeyer had 20 kills and hit .283. She also picked up 17 digs and a pair of blocks.
