There they found themselves against Center Point-Urbana and fell 18-25, 13-21, 11-15 to wrap up the tournament.
“We finally got some things rolling and even the girls proclaimed after, that it was the scrappiest, most hustle game they felt they’ve ever played,” coach Kelly Knustrom said. “Unfortunately, some unforced errors led to a 3-set loss and an end to our day.”
