According to Ellsworth Coach Dyer

"It has been 5 years since our varsity last beat MDI and this was a huge win for our program. This team has no quit in them and they all trust each other to make the plays. In the 3rd set we were down 7 points and Ava VanDorn confidently stepped up and served 11 straight points to get us back in the game. I could not be prouder of this team!"
