Kristi Farley set things in motion with 24 helpers while Sadie Johnson added 14 assists and nine digs. Makayla Beebe led all players with 23 digs in the winning effort.

"It was great to get a win here after they had just beat North Alabama," said Hudson. "The team played well tonight with all of our hitters getting involved. This also might be the best serving we have done in a while."
