Destiny Baughman led the Macks' 37-kill attack with a game-high 12 kills for a .310 hitting percentage, and Grace Goettl added nine kills. Abby Bresina dished out a game-high 21 assists, and Kaitlyn Ortmann had a match-high five aces.

Dakota Veium led the team with 13 digs, and Bell had a game-high eight block assists to contribute to the Falcons' 12 blocks in the game.
