Falling behind early in the opening set, the Lady Wildcats weren’t ever able to recover, as Spring Hill opened a 24-9 lead. Tullahoma went on to score three-straight points, to make the score a little more competitive, but the Lady Raiders put the game away then, taking the first set 25-12.

Spring Hill again controlled the second set, scoring nine of the first 10 points, taking a commanding 9-1 advantage. Tullahoma responded and cut the score to 11-5, but again, the Lady Raiders controlled the contest, going on a 12-5 run, opening a 23-10 advantage.
