Goetzinger, a 6-foot-4 freshman middle blocker, also had two kills in the match, which was in the round of 16.

Goetzinger then led Kentucky with four blocks as the Wildcats swept Purdue 25-23, 25-20, 25-16 in a quarterfinal Monday night.

Former Sun Prairie athlete Claire Chaussee, a junior outside hitter, totaled 13 kills and four blocks for 11th-seeded Louisville, which dropped a five-set match to sixth-seeded Washington on Sunday.

The University of Wisconsin earned the top seed in the tournament and was scheduled to play eighth-seeded Florida on Monday night.
