Set scores were 25-13, 25-12, 25-14.

The Lady Warriors improved to 14-1 in the VCC and 20-3 overall.

“Overall it was a great game, the girls did a really good job with their serving last night,” said TA Coach Jimmy Dunn.

Top players for the winners were junior Samantha Dunn, who had 8 aces and 7 assists; sophomore Taylor Pruitt, who had 6 aces and 2 kills; senior Cary Beahm added 9 kills; and senior Falon Williams added 6 kills.

TA at 1: 30 p.m. Saturday will play Richmond Christian at Kenston Forest, a neutral court for the finals of the VCC tournament.
