Wingate jumped out to a 14-7 lead in the opening set as Saehler had two kills and a block late in a 7-2 run.  Catawba fought back and came within a point at 18-17 after a pair of blocks from Howard.  Following a Bulldog timeout, Wingate ran off six points in a row.  Saehler and Katie Bludau each had two kills then got set point on a kill from Stumpff.
