Giorgia Baiguini was the Warrior’s assist leader, with 13, followed by Elizabeth Royer with nine.


Anchoring the team’s back row defense were Feickert and Loan, who had 21 and 20 digs, respectively. Alivia Keppler chipped in nine and Royer six. Chelsia Larson netted three digs along with Central’s lone block.


Four Central players had serve efficiencies over 93 percent, including a 16-17 clip by Baiguini, who earned three of the team’s seven aces. Loan completed 14 of 15 attempts and also had three aces, while Royer was a perfect 14-14 and Keppler a perfect 11-11.
