Minneapolis, Minn. — Carly Jenson slammed 19 kills and Victoria Hurtt added 15 to give Iowa State a four-set win over Minnesota in an NCAA regional semifinal.

The Cyclones (25-5) survived a fourth set that featured 15 ties and won 18-25, 25-23, 25-15, 31-29 at Minnesota’s Sports Pavilion.

Iowa State will face Florida State in Saturday’s 8:30 p.m. regional final at Minneapolis. The winner of that match will qualify for the NCAA championships next week in San Antonio.

It’s the second time in Iowa State’s history that the Cyclones have reached the regional finals.
