Both Shelbi Morris and McKenzi Kumpf had eight kills apiece and three digs. Morris had two blocks and Kumpf added one. Hannah Willocks added five kills and two assists.

"I was very proud of our play tonight. We kept our play at our level throughout the match," Northview coach Scott McDonald said. "Our setters really spread the ball around to our hitters and kept them off balance. Our blocking was also strong with eight blocks, with several other touches on their swings. The exciting thing tonight again was our phenomenal student section and fan support. The girls are really feeding off the energy that the crowd is giving them."

Northview's junior varsity team posted a convincing 25-8, 25-9 victory over the Rox.
