After a tough first set in which the Arabs let a 20-16 lead slip away and a second set full of errors, the Arabs had to find a way to dig deep and go the distance. The answer was to put the game on the shoulders of Cheyenne Sandoval. She responded to the challenge with a new career high of 26 kills and 4 blocks. The Arabs turned it on in the final three sets, letting their offense wear down the Wildcat defense and forcing their offense into mistakes. It was a gritty effort for the Arabs and they proved they have the mental toughness needed to defend their title.
Melanie Hernandez had an amazing 13 aces, Lupita Torres pitched in 11 kills, and Iris Hernandez had 23 assists and 5 aces. On defense Beyonce Mondragon was everywhere with 29 digs.
