The Yellow Jacket offensive attack was led by senior All-Ohio Athletic Conferece right side hitter Ellen Hawkins (Worthington/Thomas Worthington) and sophomore outside hitter Allyson Smith (Macedonia/Walsh Jesuit) as each hammered down match-high tying 12 kills.  Junior two-time first-team All-OAC outside hitter Alicia Lortcher (Norwalk) contributed nine kills.
