How it Happened

However, the Gators quickly caught up and tied the first set up 7-7. Notre Dame of Maryland proceeded to take a 17-12 lead. While the Seahawks kept it close, they could not recover and fell in the first set 20-25.

The Seahawks stayed resilient and continued to gain points, but it was not enough to notch a set win (17-25). The third and final set proved to be difficult for the Seahawks. The Gators quickly created an 8-point lead (4-12) from which the Seahawks could not recover. The gap continued to grow to 7-18, but the Seahawks did not back down.
