THE REST OF THE STORY

Two Kendall Hanak (Highlands Ranch, Colo./Rock Canyon) aces and back-to-back kills from Marlowe Embry and Allie Lugar (Wilmington, Del./Dupont) closed the deficit to 14-12. Clinging to a 16-14 edge, Shannon Hubert knocked down a kill to spark a 7-1 run, stretching the lead to 23-15 en route to a 25-19 win.
• After the teams traded points to start the second set, Gayle Edelstein (Livingston, N.J./Livingston) recorded three straight aces and the Green Terror never trailed in a 25-17.
• Trailing 6-2 in the third set, a Makayla Patterson (Colorado Springs, Colo./Cheyenne Mountain) kill started a 6-2 counter that tied the set a 8-all. The teams traded points before a Lorenzen kill gave the Green Terror a 13-12 lead that it did not relinquish en route to a 25-16 victory.
• The fourth set featured six ties and three lead changes. Muhlenberg jumped out to a 7-1 lead before a 9-1 McDaniel run gave the visitors a 17-13 lead. Tied at 24-all, Embry and Lorenzen capped the match with back-to-back kills.
