"We came out strong in the first set and things were beginning to look great for us then late in the first set, our Middle Hitter Remington Hinkle went down with an injury," said PSC head coach Martha Ganoe. "We had a tough time in the second set making adjustments and recovering from her injury. Katilyn Heavener did an excellent job stepping out of her position as an outside hitter and taking over the role of middle hitter. Once we adjusted to the change things began to move well for us again and we managed to pull out the win in the third and fourth sets.
