FSU tried to make a late run with scores from senior McKaily Thomson-Moran, freshman Maddie Lewis, and back-to-back kills by senior Beverly Braun, but the Falcons took the final three points of the set to win 25-16.
NDC kept their momentum going into the second set, jumping out to a 6-3 lead early on. The Bobcats were able to work their way back into things thanks to a pair of kills by each of junior AJ Thompson, Braun, and Thomson-Moran, tying the set at 11-11. Notre Dame ramped up their effort, scoring eight of the next nine points to surge ahead 19-12. A couple of Falcon errors gave FSU some late points, but once more the lead was too much to overcome in a 25-17 set loss.
Frostburg earned the early lead in set three, as kills from Lewis and Braun put the Bobcats up 5-3. The Falcons worked their way back to an 8-8 tie, then again took complete momentum during a scoring run that took them to a 20-13 lead. FSU kicked off a comeback thanks to their defense, as senior Hayley Delor and Thomson-Moran recorded a pair of solo blocks, followed by kills from junior Tauja Durham and Thomson-Moran to bring the Bobcats all the way back within 22-20. As the sides went back-and-forth, Frostburg couldn't find the run they needed to tie things up, eventually falling 25-22 in the sweep.
