Durand coach Molly Kelsey: “In the first set, it was back and forth and we just couldn’t seem to get in our normal rhythm. It took us to the last few points to pull away and get some important kills. During the second set, we went out strong knowing we had the mental edge over Newman. Jenna Damon went in at point No. 4 and served 16 straight points, including 3 aces. Her float serves were incredibly hard for the other team to return, which led to a lot of out-of-system balls, and our defense and offense were able to capitalize on that. I am extremely proud of how everyone stepped up and played tonight.”
