KEY MOMENTS

* Bre Kopke represented IU East on the all-tournament team.

* IU East held off late charges by Martin Methodist in the first and third sets of the morning match to earn its second win of the season.

* William Carey won the last four points of the pivotal third set to swipe away the momentum in the afternoon match.

NUMBERS OF NOTE

* Kopke and Lexi Gentry both tallied double digits in kills in both matches.

* Samantha Wigfield recorded double digits in digs in both matches.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE

"I thought we had a great day today. Got a win in the morning and really fought in the afternoon game. I see a lot of progress from this group in the first two weekends out. We're batting a few injuries that are forcing us to make changes in the lineup, and they are taking it in stride." - IU East coach Abby Niekamp

UP NEXT
