Sophomore Stella Koch had 11 kills, junior Halsie Hempfling had five kills, and sophomore Meredith Coleman had four kills.
The following day against C.S. Lewis Academy (1-13) the team won with authority, taking a 3-0 victory (25-7, 25-8, 25-6). It was another big assist night for Gracie Koch, who had 26 assists to go along with 11 aces. Stella Koch had 13 kills, Hempfling had five, and Coleman had three.
