The Lady Patriots had 26 aces on their serves.  Senior Sophia Terns led the team with 12 aces.  Senior Jessica Draffen added 9 aces.  Junior Piper Glasgow scored 3 aces while senior Elizabeth Andrews had 2 aces.

Sophia Ternes led the Lady Patriots with 14 kills, and Elizabeth Andrews had 9 kills as the Lady Patriots won the match 3 sets to 2.

Speaking on her team’s come back Coach McSwain said, “I think they showed that they are a top seeded team.  I think that they showed that they can come back from being down and really rally together.  I think that they are the family they say they are.  They have grown a lot despite that they have had four head coaches in four years.  Our seniors have been real troopers and they have handled that with grace.”
