Williston State played really well in the third and fourth sets, but a slow start sunk the Lady Tetons.

Miles CC jumped out to a big first-set win and immediately put the Lady Tetons on the ropes by going up two sets to none. Williston State did respond well and put together two great sets at the end of the contest.

The first set ended in a 25-9 win for Miles CC, who followed that up by winning the second set 25-19.
