Diamond Lester again was a major factor with 10 aces, five kills and two blocks. Aniya Harmon had 11 assists and three kills. Mary Dollinger also had 11 assists. Hannah Thurston and Areyana Harrison had four kills each. Destiny Johnson also had four kills and two blocks.

“It was nice to see everyone contribute in tonight’s (Tuesday’s) win,” said Carman-Ainsworth head coach Barb Hurand. “My setters did a nice job moving the ball around. We missed more serves than I would have liked to, but other than that we played pretty solid ball.”
