Jacqui Uecker collected 12 kills, seven digs, two aces and a block to help Ripon ward off Riverbank 25-12, 10-25, 25-12, 25-16 in a Trans-Valley League volleyball match on Monday.

The Indians evened their league record at 1-1 and are now 11-5 overall.

“Jacqui had a very well-rounded night,” Ripon coach Adrienne Beltrami said. “I am extremely proud of her smart play when needed and her aggressive attack when the time was right. She showed a ton of course sense and maturity tonight.”

Breana Barrios, a 6-foot-1 middle, aided the cause with six kills and four blocks. Sam McCreath racked up seven aces, setter Lauren Weibe handed out 30 assists to go with 15 digs, and Emily O’Brien accumulated 21 digs.

Ripon next hosts traditional rival Escalon (2-0, 14-6) on Wednesday.
