The third set would be a frenzy of lead changes before the Lady Norse would win the final set of the evening 25-23.

To sum up the night, Head Coach Liz Hart had a one word explanation for the way her team played.

“Wow,” Hard said. “I thought we played very well, that was a very good team, and we executed well.”

The team as a whole would hit above .300 for the evening.

“Anytime all five players hit above 300, it’s a good day,” Hart said. “We did a really good job there. Taylor [Snyder] did a really nice job putting them in good situations to be able to do that.”
