Highlights of the first set included the Huskies' bench cheering on teammate and rookie left side Faith Grant with the worldwide well-known "USA, USA, USA" chant after the Warren, Ohio native made several key plays.

Kally L'Heureux (3rd year, Nursing, Bonnyville, Alberta) was also steady with three consecutive services leading to a 19-16 advantage.

Taking advantage of several Wolves' free balls, L'Heureux was brilliant at the service line with back-to-back service aces to claim a 25-17 decision. She also had service aces at 11-9 and 13-9.

Shae-Lyn Barth (1st year, Business, Chestermere, Alberta) was a bundle of energy on the sidelines leading the Huskies bench in cheering and support.
