“I was very pleased at how we played today. The girls came out strong in the first and then just played with control the rest of the match,” said head coach Andrea Hudson. “I was really proud of Brooke Wilsman for closing out the match with three aces. We are looking forward to the tournament next week and a chance to move on.”

 

Silvia Sartori led the Lady Flames with 11 kills and nine digs. Bailey Kress followed with nine slams and Quinne Daoust added eight. Sadie Johnson and Kristi Farley each tallied 15 assists.
