Sophomore Journey Stauffer led the Lady Jackets with eight kills, followed by junior Eve Dirkse with six and junior Hope Cabrera with four. Junior Canyon Stauffer dished out a team-high 12 assists, while sophomore Mariana Paniagua delivered seven service aces and eight assists, while senior Abby Edwards smashed four service aces against the Lady Eagles (0-1, 0-11).
