SHS junior Jane Roush finished with six points and one ace, Marissa Johnson added four points, Katie Barton and Haley Musser both marked two points, while Sara Schenkelberg contributed one point in the win.

At the net, Southern was led by Faith Teaford with 12 kills and five blocks. Cleland had five kills and two blocks for the Purple and Gold, Smith and Cole each added four kills, while Johnson, Maynard and Macie Michael had one kill apiece.
