Down 7-4 in the opening game, Harrison had a pair of kills to spark a Catawba run that was capped by a pair of aces by Missy Bartholomew (New Carlisle, IN) to put the Lady Indians up 13-9. The Lady Eagles tied the game at 16-16 on a kill by Jennifer Holmes (Franklin, TN), but Harrison added two more kills in a run that pushed Catawba back up 22-16. Carson-Newman pulled within 22-19, but Catawba scored seven of the next nine points to grab a 29-21 edge. Catawba roared to a 5-0 lead in game two and went on for an easy win. Harrison had four kills in a 9-0 run that gave the Lady Indians a 17-4 advantage. Harrison finished the game with nine kills and a block. Carson-Newman would take game three.
