Catawba used an early 9-3 run in the opening set to go up 14-9 after an ace by Meredith Furr (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill HS). The Cobras reduced the margin to a single point twice, but an attack error by Coker and a kill from Garrison gave the Lady Indians a 20-17 edge. Kills from Rachel Gallup (Fredericksburg, Va./Courtland HS) and Kaytee Frabotta (Sterling Heights, MI/Henry Ford II HS) pushed the lead to 22-18 and Garrison would end the set on a kill.
