Luaren Wells (Glen Allen, Va./Glen Allen) capped the 25-18 win with one of her four kills.
• Trailing 9-6 in the second set, an Emma Lorenzen kill and back-to-back aces tied the set at 9-all. After the Blazers went back in front 11-9, an attack error and Gayle Edelstein ace ignited a 7-0 run to give the hosts a 16-11 lead en route to another 25-18 win.
• Bookended by Allie Lugar kills, McDaniel jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the third set. Behind two Robyn Reus aces, Hood recorded six straight points to close to within 15-12 but an Isabel Paci (Ellicott City, Md./River Hall) kill and ace helped stretch the lead back to 19-14.
