Waterford def. Wilmot, 25-18, 25-22, 25-16

At Waterford on Sept. 25, the Falcons dropped a three-set match to the Wolverines, despite a team-leading seven kills from junior Karina Lever.

Sophomore libero Kaelyn Bedessem contributed three service aces for the Panthers.

“We are nursing a number of little injuries, but we are improving as a team and learning a lot about ourselves,” Panthers coach Josh Price said. “It was a good week for Sami Christiansen as she is playing well and all her hard work is paying off.”
