Junior outside hitter Lindsay Rescott led Westfield with 12 kills, seven digs, two service aces and two blocks. Junior outside hitter Julia Warner and sophomore middle hitter Carole Duquette had nine and seven kills, respectively. Freshman Stana Wheeler posted a match-high 31 assists and added nine digs.
