Gentry Kline led the defense with 18 receptions and 15 digs.
Coach Angie Dale says: “On our first night of competition, I believe we played well. It was a very back and forth game, so we need to learn to keep a lead and expand without letting them back in. Defensively we played very strong and just need to control the ball better on offense. Overall, we learned and head to the gym to work out more kinks tomorrow.”
