UNC Pembroke used a 14-2 run to take control of game three, taking an 18-11 lead. Hartley had five kills in the run.

The Lady Indians won the final four points, the last three coming on a kill and two blocks from Spears.
The Lady Braves scored the first five points of the deciding game. Catawba rallied from an 8-2 deficit on three straight kills by Griffith, but UNCP scored four of the next five points to go up 12-6. The Lady Indians would again get close at 13-12, using a run with three kills by Collier and two aces by Tiffany Andrassy (Raleigh, NC/Sanderson HS).
