Centre came away with 12 blocks on the night. The Eagles stayed competitive in all three sets and hand a chance to force a fourth set with their best attack coming in set three with 13 kills and only three errors.
Lauren Budde (Taylor Mill, Ky.) tallied 10 kills to lead the Eagles but also had seven errors, which was indicative of the entire team all night long. Emily Andrews (Deltona, Fla.) added seven kills and only three errors. Hannah Wheeler (Lexington, Ky.) dug 17 balls and Julia Armstrong (Austin, Texas) added 30 assists.
