Wallevand knocked out 10 kills in the nightcap and was followed by Alie Johanneck with nine.

The service game was also strong as the Raiders collected 12 in the match against Oak Hills Christian, and 30 in both of their matches, led by Manthey with five in the first match.

The goal this season for head coach Jane Peterson is to get better each match. She commented that the team did that Wednesday and focused on how fluid their movement was as a team.
