THE REST OF THE STORY

• After a back-and-forth start to the second set, a Jezerski kill gave the Green Terror a 8-7 edge that they did not relinquish. Another Jezerski kill and Marlowe Embry ace stretched the lead to 20-14 en route to a 25-17 victory.
• Three Jezerski kills helped McDaniel race out to a 5-0 lead in the third set. The Shorewomen, however, countered to tie the set at 6-all. Tied at 9-all, Abby Hilty notched back-to-back aces to give Washington the lead. Kylie Peets added back-to-back kills later in the set for a 21-11 lead en route to the 25-16 win.
• After four early ties in the fourth set, Emma Lorenzen knocked down a kill for a 6-5 edge. Two Hayley Mills (Bowie, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) in three points extended the lead to 21-14 before Lorenzen capped the 25-16 win with a kill.
