We did a nice job of setting up our blocks, and we hit smart.

McCauley said senior Cassie Scrivner, in particular, had a strong outing.

Katie Bogart added six kills; Mary Kreger was 6 for 6 serving with an ace; Lexie Johnson had two solo blocks and four deflected blocks; and Rose Supan was 6 for 6 hitting with two kills, had four solo blocks, and four deflected blocks.
