THE LEADERS

FOR THE FOES
• Kaya Melchor led the Gopher attack with five kills.
• Virginia Estes had eight digs and an ace.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• A Gayle Edelstein ace keyed a 2-0 start to the first set. Back-to-back Taylor Bauman aces stretched the lead to 17-9. Goucher closed to within 19-14 but a service error and Lauren Wells kill ignited a 6-0 close to the set for a 25-14 win.
• An Emma Lorenzen kill capped a 3-1 start to the second set. The Gophers tied the set three times. Knotted at 11-all, Allie Lugar (Wilmington, Del./Dupont) knocked down a kill to spark a 13-2 close to the 25-13 win. Regan Gefroh (Fort Collins, Colo./Fort Collins) and Marlowe Embry keyed the final run with two and three aces, respectively.
• Goucher raced out to a 7-2 lead in the third set to force a timeout. McDaniel, behind three Isabel Paci (Ellicott City, Md./River Hill) kills, countered with a 10-4 run to take a 12-11 lead. Trailing 16-14, Alena Villanueva (Gaithersburg, Md./Magruder) served the Green Terror to an 8-0 run and 22-16 advantage en route to the 25-17 victory.

THE INSIDE STORY
