Kellie Schmidt closed out the match with a run serving points, including three aces. Schmidt didn’t miss a serve all night and led the team with eight kills. Setter Laura Grace Swindler had 16 assists. Dooley finished with nine assists, one kill and two digs.

Coach Chee Lee employed many young reserves in the match vs. O-W, including sophomore setter Kinsley Wade who eight assists and four digs in the third and final game of the match.
