Individual highlights for the game were Haley Pelini with 14 kills, Mariam Kande with 14 assists and 3 serving aces and Justine Trevino with 27 digs and 4 serving aces.

In attendance for the game was local resident Pattie Stempka who is the founder of  "Pattie's Pink Warriors". All proceeds from the game which included t-shirt sales, basket raffles and serving games went to "Pattie's Pink Warriors". Since founding the group in 2008, Pattie's Pink Warriors have raised over $124,000 to go to the American Cancer Society in hoping to find a cure for cancer.

With the win, the Saints are now 5-13 and are back in action Wednesday evening at home vs. Pitt Bradford's JV team for a 6:00 start.
