Katelynn Halstead posted eight kills, while Kwapnioski dished out 21 assists. Maddie Walkowiak posted a team-high 15 digs.

"Overall it was a good first full weekend of volleyball for our team," said CCC head coach Mary Young. Obviously, playing three five-set matches in a short amount of time was a little draining and eye opening for all of us. I was extremely proud of our athletes for digging deep and finding ways to win and truly earning quality wins. We played a lot of athletes on our roster and that will serve us well as our season progresses."
