THE REST OF THE STORY
• Two Anna Jezerski (Ellicott City, Md./Howard) aces keyed a 5-0 run that opened up a 7-3 lead in the first set. Goucher rallied to tie the set at 20-all on a Bianca Brown ace before a Makayla Patterson (Colorado Springs, Colo./Rock Canyon) kill, Gopher error and consecutive Marlowe Embry kills made it a 24-20 lead. Patterson and Jezerski capped a 25-22 win with a block.
• Goucher jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the second set but back-to-back Isabel Paci (Ellicott City, Md./River Hill) kills closed the deficit to 4-3. The Gophers extended the lead to 22-17 and held a 24-21 advantage on a Kaya Melchor kill but a service error, Emma Lorenzen kill and Goucher error tied the score. The teams traded points until Lorenzen put an end to it with a kill and ace for a 30-28 win.
• The third set featured eight ties but McDaniel would not lead until kills from Lorenzen and Embry tied the score at 20-all and Alena Villanueva (Gaithersburg, Md./Magruder) recorded an ace for a 21-20 edge. After Emily Sorrells and Lorenzen traded points, Paci knocked down another kill and Embry had her lone ace of the match before a Paci and Lorenzen block capped the 25-21 win.
