After two close setbacks (25-21, 25-23), the Wolves drilled the Jags 25-15 and 25-12 to seize the momentum.

But BBE isn't ranked No. 7 in Class A without reason. Becca Gruber led the attack finishing with 15 kills; Brittany Roelike was also tough at the net with 12 put-a-ways.

Defensive leaders for the Jags were Roelike and Taylor Braegelman while Mariah Rach and Hailey Braegelman combined for 37 set assists.

The Wolverines put Brooklyn Gould to work at the twine where she took 59 swings for 17 kills with 6 errors. Ashley Dirksen chipped in with 11 more. Emily Orwick served up 3 aces and Aleah Schwitters provided 38 set ups and Molly Friese 31 back-row saves.
