The Lady Warriors started off the game strong with some big blocks and a good service run. They had a good first two sets, although the Lady Eagles coach questioned every call that was made on the court. They did not let him get in their heads. Terry Trude, the Lady Warriors coach says, “I’m really proud. We went through some ups and downs. We knew we weren’t going to play a three-set match like usual. That’s just how volleyball works. Whoever has the momentum in tight games like this is the team who usually wins.“

Both the teams had big service runs in the third set, but the Lady Eagles pulled the lead 7-3. 

Going into the fourth set after losing the third, the Lady Warriors were down points from the Lady Eagles until Abby Gallaher got a service run and got them ahead 19-16. After the service run, the Warriors rallied and found their spark. 

Finishing the game, Gallaher had 13 kills, 12 service points, and six blocks. Katrina Cowder had 13 kills and four blocks, while Marley Croyle had 12 kills.
