The Wildcats' have won the first 18 sets to start their season. Katie Krieger had a total 10 digs in the game. Kortney Carney had a game high 23 assists and Bailee Bromenshenkel had a game high seven kills for the Wildcats. 

"They bought into everything this year. Instead of getting frustrated, they stuck it out since August, when a lot of kids maybe could have backed down," Head Coach Jane Passa said. 

Passa emphasized how important it was for the team to buy into the circumstances of this season. She said that her most surprising player to start the season was Kaitlyn Emmald because of her consistency and how great a teammate she is, which can go a long way.
