Defensively, Katelyn Payne had three blocks, while McClelland added a block and three digs. Millburg led the team in digs with ten, while Cassie Krager (six), Glick (four) and Avery Pope (three) also had multiple digs.
On the attack, McClelland led the way with five kills, while Cassie Krager had four and Madison Krager and Payne had three apiece. Pope would lead the team in assists with 11.
