In the rubber match for the season between the two schools it was Winfield-Mt.

After the match, Winfield-Mt. Union head coach Dave Pieart talked about what led his team to the win.”I thought we were extremely consistent throughout the night.

In the victory, WMU was led by Jenna Buffington with 17 kills. Kayla Edwards added 32 assists and Jami Wilkerson led the Wolves defense with 21 digs. With the win, WMU is now 15-14 and advances to the regional semifinals against No. 10 New London Thursday. IMS ends their season at 18-15.
