Rewatch the match

Neither team was able to gain a clear edge over the other. Youngsville made the first run to take a 9-5 lead in the opening set. Eisenhower was able to gain momentum thanks to the strong serving of sophomore Caroline Smyth, who finished with 15 service points on her way to earning Allegheny Grille of Foxburg Player of the Game honors.

Smyth talked about the win (editor’s note – the plug to the soundboard was accidentally knocked out so a portion of the interview will not have sound. Let it play through to hear the entire interview).
