The Raiders needed five games to get the win over the Ravens. The final scores were 21-25, 25-16, 21-25, 25-23, 15-13.
"It was great effort to get the win over NEO," said CCC head coach Mary Young. "The match lasted over two hours, so it was a battle and it was awesome to get such a quality win."
Match 2 vs. Baker JV
CCC looked like it was headed for a sweep before the Wildcats came roaring back to force a fifth game. The final scores read 25-22, 25-16, 25-27, 21-25, 15-10.
Laetsch topped the Raiders in kills with 21, while Kwapnioski registered 46 assists. Gotschall finished with 27 digs.
"Against Baker, I thought we were sluggish and emotionally maybe a little drained after winning the NEO match," said Young. However, the players showed a lot of resolve in getting the job done."
