"The team started out strong, did not finish strong in game 3 where we struggled, but finished strong in the fourth" said Powers.

Lansing took games 1 and 2 25-20 and 25-21, dropped the 3rd game 25-14 and then rallied in game 4 for a 25-19 victory. Down 10-5 in that game the Bobcats went on a 16-1 run to lead 21-12 and never looked back. A big key during the comeback was the play of senior setter Sally Stoyell who had 9 consecutive service points.
"Sally did an excellent job", said Powers, "at one point she had 9 straight serves for points and another stretch of 5 in a  row."

Coach Powers also noted the depth of the squad as all 13 players saw playing time.

"I have a very deep bench," she noted, " and they have proved that over the last 5 victories."
