LINCOLN, Neb. – One match after posting a career-high 28 kills, Taylor Mims and Washington State’s 2017 volleyball season has come to a close.

Mims, the former Billings Senior standout, recorded nine kills and a pair of digs as WSU fell to No. 5 Nebraska 25-13, 25-13, 25-18. The Huskers tallied 44 kills to Washington State’s 20. WSU was held to a .033 hitting percentage in the loss.

Washington State ends the season with an 18-16 record. The Cougars posted a 6-14 mark in the difficult Pac-12 Conference schedule.

Mims, who was named the 2014 Montana Gatorade player of the year, finished her junior campaign with 525 kills, including the career-high 28 in Friday’s opening match of the NCAA Tournament against Florida State. She also had a season-high 22 digs in the contest.
