Kills from Maddy Bigley (Pueblo, Colo./Pueblo Centennial), Nia Roberts (Walkersville, Md./Frederick), and Angalyn Strouse (Spring Grove, Pa./Spring Grove) gave the hosts set point and Allyson Burgee (Fairfax, Va./Robinson Secondary School) closed out the 25-17 win with an ace.
• Gefroh served five straight points to set the pace in the second set and the Gators would never get any closer than three the rest of the way in a 25-14 McDaniel win.
• A Lauren Guyer (York, Pa./York Suburban) ace and Burgee kill capped an early 8-3 run to start the third set. The Green Terror stretched the lead to as large as 19-12 en route to a 25-19 victory.
