After pool play the Knights were placed in the championship bracket of the tournament. There they fell in two sets to Carlton in the first round of the championship bracket.

Although WCA finished the tournament 2-2, they felt positive about their results as the two losses came against solid opponents.

“Overall, this was an excellent day,” Hill said. “We are a very good team. A lot of it is coming down to eliminating the downs that we tend to have and maintaining our ups with high intensity.”

Holly Van Kempen led the Knights’ offense with 22 kills in the tournament, and Christina Kruize provided all the team’s assists with 48. Tiana Christenson led the defense with 34 digs.

The Knights are now 8-5 this season with a conference record of 3-3.
