The Lions won the match 27-25, 25-14, 26-24.
“We played our heart out,” Geneva coach Annah Haeseler said. “I am so proud of how our girls played. We fought until the end and sets one and three could have gone either way. I am proud of our fight, of our team play, of how hard we wanted it, and how we never gave up.”
Jordan Vencill led the Eagles with 14 kills and also contributed with nine digs. Myla Rhodes added nine kills, Morgan Stoltz finished with a team-high 22 digs and Becca Quirk posted a team-best 16 assists.
