Coach Jennie Webber-Heilman said there were some double hits and carries by Bainbridge that weren’t getting called.
“It was nice they came back the way this did. They didn’t let it affect them,” she said.
“In the beginning, it was really rocky. Our team became unified ultimately and it helped us win the game. It was very exciting. It proves hard work pays off,” said Jordan Kidd.
Kendall Hastings had a huge match for the Wolves with 19 kills, five stuff blocks and nine digs. “During the game, we definitely came together,” she said. “Each individual played a huge part to contributing to the team effort.”
Hastings also served 15-for-16 and had three aces.
