THE LEADERS

FOR THE FOES
• Paige DeAlba led the Bears with eight kills.
• Grace Sullivan paced the defense with 17 digs.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• Three straight Anna Jezerski aces helped stretch the lead to 5-0 in the first set. After Ursinus closed the margin to 12-11, four Emma Lorenzen kills in a 6-0 run pushed the lead to 18-11 en route to a 25-12 first-set win.
• McDaniel jumped out to an 8-2 lead in the second set and held a 16-10 lead midway through the set before a service error and Grace Sullivan ace started a run of five straight points that closed the margin to 16-15. The Bears eventually tied the set at 20-all on a Kelly Piotrowicz kill and took a 21-20 lead on a Lauren Novotny ace before winning, 25-21.
• The third set featured five early ties and a pair of lead changes before back-to-back Abigail Hernandez (Gaithersburg, Md./Richard Montgomery) kills helped the Green Terror open up a 13-9 advantage en route to a 25-15 victory.
• Clinging to a 5-4 edge in the fourth set, Isabel Paci (Ellicott City, Md./River Hill) put down a kill and Gayle Edelstein (Livingston, N.J./Livingston) followed that with an ace to spark an 11-4 run that opened up a 16-8 advantage. McDaniel went on to close out the match with a 25-17 victory.

THE INSIDE STORY
Abigail Hernandez and Isabel Paci rounded out a quartet of Green Terror players with double-digit kills, recording 13 and 10, respectively.
