“The girls are very young this year. We lost six seniors, so this is a rebuilding year and they are handling it very well.

We are trying some new things and figuring out what will work best for us. I think once we figure that out, we will be very successful.”

Leading in kills for UC was Mariah Claywell with 12, followed by Emily Livingston and Hannah Fischer, each with six. Aces were led by Katie Elliott with seven, followed by Andrea Sanders with four. Claywell also led the way in assists with nine and Carlee Rismiller contributed seven assists.

The Lady Indians are on the road Thursday at Union County.
