Up 17-14, the Lady Indians scored eight of the last nine points, while included a block and three kills from Whitmer.

The Lady Indians went on 9-2 run to close within 22-18 before the Wolves persevered, taking the set on an ace by Parrish.
The third set was tied at 9-all when Newberry got a pair of aces from Prachar and a pair of kills from Madison Schultz to race out to a 15-9 lead. Two kills by Soper and an ace by Hollingsworth brought the margin to 18-10. Whitmer tried to bring Catawba back with three late kills to draw Catawba within 22-18, but Newberry held on.

The Lady Indians bounced back to lead 22-20 after a kill by Taylor Doss (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS), but the Wolves pulled even on a Prachar ace then won the match on consecutive kills by Parrish.
