Chelsea Lasker contributed 30 assists and six digs, while Kennedy Hady had 10 kills and 9 digs and Kiley Nihart had 12 digs.
“We had a pretty slow start in Set 1, but picked up our defense and cleaned up our play,” RCTC coach Jennifer Nerison said. “Our defense at the net stepped up and made some adjustments.
