"Every game is big for us at this stage," said Monett Head Coach Shyrah Perry. "It's really hard to beat the same team three times in a season. I am proud of the way our girls battled tonight. It was a team effort."
Monett's Hunter Glouse had seven kills and four blocks for the Lady Cubs. Elise Meyer added five kills. Maddie Schmidt contributed four kills and 11 digs, and Madison Carlin chipped in with three kills and eight assists.
"The girls are hungry to win," said Perry. "We will have to play really hard if we want to beat Carl Junction, nothing less than our best effort will help us tonight."
