LeeAnne Davis led the Cougars with 29 kills, with Bethany Wiatt adding 15.
"We played well at times, and not so well at other times," head coach Jill Schreiber said. "But the main thing is we came out on top. We were working on different types of hits and moving players around. Tari Straziscar came out and played well tonight, probably one of the best games I have seen her play.
"Kensy Asbell also played well tonight," she continued. "She was hitting the ball hard. Kallie Brattain came out and dominated with her serving. We need to work on coming out strong and not playing the catch up game."
Schreiber said her team seems to like getting behind and playing hard and wished they would come out strong and stay strong the entire match.
"It was a good win, and the girls needed and deserve the win," Schreiber said.
