Sophomore Kaytlin Elkins was named to the all-tournament team after posting eight kills against Augusta following a 13-kill showing versus Anderson. Against Augusta (6-1), sophomore Camryn Frederick had seven kills and freshman Peyton Kendall had six kills, four digs and an ace. Senior Angelica Acevedo put up totals of 20 assists and 11 digs.
In the first match, Elkins added eight digs to her 13 kills while Kendall produced seven kills and eight digs and Frederick had five kills and four block-assists. Riley Bane came up with 17 digs.
