Assumption took a 19-15 lead in the third game, but Clinton battled back and pulled even on the serving of Devynn Paulsen. With the score tied at 20, Mallory Voss served four consecutive points for Clinton, which eventually pulled out the win on a sideout.

Voss finished with five aces for Clinton, and she also had eight kills. Paulsen recorded nine kills.

Assumption (0-4 MAC) was led by Melissa Hayward, who had 10 kills and 24 digs.

Clinton also won the sophomore and junior varsity matches each by a 2-0 score.
