Game 4 went back to Saint Mary's for the win of 25-21. However, it was the Cougars who clinched the win in game five by two points and the final score of 15-13, therefore claiming the overall victory of the night, 3-2.
In a short post-game interview with head coach Shawn Olmstead, he said the wins were a team effort and had no idea Tambre Haddock and Alexa Gray had that many combined kills until he actually saw the stat sheet.
Olmstead also said he was happy with where the team stands in the conference. He believes this conference is a strong and competitive conference and is looking forward to playing each team.
He expressed that he felt his team served tough and consistant and that their defense was steady and strong.
The Cougars advance in the conference to 8-3. The next matchup is Saturday night. They will host Pacific at home in Provo at 7:00 Pm.
