Izzy, Jenna, Lauren, and Katie (Van Berkum) hit the ball well and found the open spots, and Erica again did a great job in the back row and had some nice saves.
"I told the girls after the match that they have come together nicely as a team, and that it really showed tonight in all facets of the game. This was a good momentum boost to get us going into the conference tourney next week."
