The Lady Choctaws rolled to a 25-13 victory in the third game, only to see the YellowJackets dominate the fourth set with a 25-17 win to force a fifth game. Mississippi College jumped out to a big lead, forcing LeTourneau to play from behind, and the Lady Choctaws earned the 15-9 win and a 3-2 match victory.
Kristen Chapman led the YellowJackets offense with 14 kills and 13 digs her sixth double-double of the season. Kathryn Drinkard recorded 32 assists and 11 digs. Magen Douglas had a team-high 17 digs to lead the defense, while Crystal Read and Kayla Blucher had 13 and 12, respectively.
