“We fell behind and lost the first set in both of our matches, but the girls showed a lot of heart and determination to come back and win both of those matches. We struggled at times with our passing, but had some really good serving,” said Southern Coffey head coach Jeff True. 

Weers also led offensively where she hit 15 kills, followed by Ross Snovelle’s 13 kills and Spencer’s seven kills. 

Defensively, Weers and Snovelle made two blocks apiece while Spencer made four digs. Weers also ripped two digs while Kyla Houston and Snovelle each knocked one dig.
