Catawba ran away to claim the easy first set win.  Raye posted seven of her kills and added nine assists in the opening set.  The Lady Indians led 16-13 when Meeks and Richardson delivered kills to spark a 6-0 run that decided the set.

Carson-Newman responded late in set two.  Down 20-18, Swisher tied the set with a kill then Lindsey Bryant (Gainesville, GA) combined on a pair of blocks to push the Lady Eagles on top 23-20.  Two Catawba errors provided the set points.

The Lady Indians led 17-14 in set three before putting it away on a 7-1 run.  Whitmer had three kills in the run and Raye ended the set on a kill.
