“Down 2-0, we came back and showed a lot of heart for a young team,” said Decatur coach Clark Oberle.
“We made a lot of errors early and we talked about staying aggressive and playing with confidence.”
Autumn Finney led the Decatur comeback with 17 kills. Trinity Vinzant put down 11. Satasha Kostelecky tallied 10 kills with three blocks.
