Isabelle Meltzer started it all with a 5-0 run that set the tone for the set.  Every rotation but one of the first 6 scored at least 1 point and Summit was looking at a 16-7 lead through rotation six.  But then Meltzer came back in rotation 7 and ran off 8 consecutive serves and the Crusaders just had no answers for the serving offense.  Final score set 1,  25-7.

Set 2 was more of the same although a few more rallies were on tap and the hitters got a chance to get more involved.  Abby Wells started it in rotation 2 with a 4 point service run that had the Top up 6-1.  Emily Demm then rattled off 8 service points that complemented her handful of kills in the front row and the Hilltoppers had an overwhelming lead at 15-3 in rotation 3.  Katie Cooper continued the serving pressure in rotation 5 with a 6-0 run that saw Summit go up 24-6.  In the run,  Jessica Clark made a few key offensive and defensive plays in the front that allowed SHS to pretty much close the door on ALJ.  One rotation later,  the final nail was delivered and the Hilltoppers came through with a 25-9 set 2 and match win to improve to 9W-1L.
