Kaitlyn Foster led the attack with nine kills while Olivia Drummond added eight and Abbie Robb andMacey Pool seven each. Pool led in digs with 19 and Kaitlyn Corbett added in 17.

Southwestern’s offense was blazing in game two as the Pirates dominated Centenary. SU didn’t hit below .324 in any single match and allowed only 45 points combined in the three sets. Drummond was unstoppable, leading Southwestern with 12 kills on 17 attempts with no errors for a .706 attack percentage. Kate Mitchell and Robb had banner games as well with .538 and .467 attack percentages respectively.
