After the weekend's win, coach Scott McDonald was pleased with how his team played in the victory.

"Today we were outstanding in serve receive the entire match," McDonald said. "We did not have one shanked pass or overpass in serve receive."

The Knights got a big match from Elizabeth Emmert, who had 25 assists, 13 kills, four aces and a pair of digs. Briana Cook had another 20 assists in the win and added three digs and two kills.

"Elizabeth Emmert was outstanding today in every phase of the game," McDonald said. "She and Briana really spread the ball around to outside hitters."

The Knights had a very successful attack at the net against the Athenians as Brylie Riddell posted a team-high 15 kills to go with 10 digs and five service aces and Kaylee Clark added 22 digs to complement 10 kills. Freshman Shelbi Morris had nine kills, seven digs and two blocks. On defense, Ashlen Buck had 25 digs to lead the squad.
