Freshman OH Ana Oliveira led offensively with 16 kills, freshman RS Sharon Tukuaoga added 13, and freshman OH Victoria Santos chipped in 7.

PC was anchored on backrow defense by freshman libero Morgan Currie who led with 20 digs, followed by Oliveira adding 11, and freshman DS Koya Sowells chipping in 8. Currie also added a team high 4 aces. Oliveira's 22 assists completed her triple-double for the match, while sophomore setter Adriana Skipper led with 26.
