      Head coach Dominic Yoder and assistant coach Mandie Meyer led the Green team, while assistant Inga Kurgonaite coached Gold.

      "Both teams played hard tonight," said Yoder. "We still need to continue to work on our serve reception and gain consistency on defense across the board."

      Senior Sarah Hamilton led the Green squad with 10 kills. Seniors Lina Lopes (9) and Kalli Herron (8) helped lead the offense. Senior Kellisha Harley tallied 31 assists, while sophomore Alex Berger led the defense with eight digs.
