The first set was tight the whole way with Royal Valley leading most of the way. The largest lead for either team was four. However, a late surge at the end of the set gave Sabetha the first set 25-23. The second set was very similar to the first with it being very close the whole way. This time, though, the Bluejays were able to win five straight points in the middle of the set to take control, and they didn’t look back. Both teams went back and forth until the end when Sabetha won the final three points of the match to seal it to hand Royal Valley their second loss of the season. Seniors Jessica Gruber and senior Mary Lukert played spectacularly for the Bluejays leading them to their two-set victory.

The Panthers got off to a hot start getting 7 points in a row and leading 8-3. That was when the Kaws turned up the intensity and surged all the way back and took control. Perry-Lecompton had the lead for most of the rest of the set with it being tight the entire way. The Kaws slammed the door shut late to win the set by three points. In set two, the Panthers once again started well getting out to a seven-point lead which was sustained throughout the remainder of the set. Royal Valley started off on the right foot in the final set, carrying momentum from their second set victory. However, the Kaws were able to hang and outlast the Panthers to hand them their third loss of the season. Junior hitter Taylor Damme was the hero of the match as the Panthers didn’t have anyone able to handle her attacks.

The opening set was close for most of it. It was the Bluejays that were able to pull away with eight straight points to keep it out of reach. The final set was very back and forth down to the very end. Sabetha led most of the way, but never had a lead larger than three points. The Bluejays were able to outlast the Kaws down the stretch to escape their own triangular with two wins.
