After struggling with first serves in the second set, the Lady Kats pulled it together to get the road win. Our girls still had periods of uncertainty and
inconsistent play, but found enough confidence to make plays when it counted. Our improved block-and-attack was a big factor in the win.

digs. Setter Kylee Lauderbaugh passed out 48 assists and added two kills and two aces, and Molly Fisher dug 11 balls and served three aces. Ellie Trine had six digs, and Shelbi Corlett and Shelby Hopkins both made contributions passing from the back row.
