In the opening game, the Red and Gold (1-3, 0-1 TVC Hocking) and Lady Wildcats (2-3, 0-1) were knotted at 3-all before a 12-0 run by the visitors widened the margin. Waterford closed out the first game 10-5 run en route to a 25-8 victory.

The second game was tightly contested as South Gallia trailed 6-3 early in the contest, but the Green and White manufactured a 9-0 scoring run to build a 15-3 advantage. From there, the Lady Wildcats outscored the Lady Rebels 10-7 to earn a 25-11 victory.

Following a 1-all tie in the third game, Waterford never surrendered the lead again and rolled to a 25-11 win while earning a 3-0 match victory.

The Lady Rebels service attack was led by senior Rachal Colburn with four points, while Christine Griffith followed with three. Amaya Howell posted one point to round out the SGHS service attack.
