“Our level of play was much improved from our last match against De Soto,” Ottawa coach Laura Jeannin said. “We were confident and were very aggressive throughout the entire tournament.
“Brette Moore and Katlyn Geist put up a strong block in the front row. Our defense was scrappy and we made many defensive plays to keep the momentum on our side of the court.”
