Bressler and Jen Bishop had 13 digs each and Tangie Lyons had 10 assists.
“It was a big win for us,” Penns Valley coach Joi McKenzie said. “We just played really solid volleyball. We did good job finding the other team’s weaknesses and exploiting them. ... I thought our communication was fantastic. We came out fighting and we never gave up.”
The Lady Eagles put up some big numbers from the service line, with 26 aces and 18 errors.
Courtney Fisher led with seven aces and Jess Bressler added six.
Jess Bressler also had 21 assists, nine digs, three kills and three blocks.
Kaitlyn Miller posted 12 kills and Nicole Doroschenko added five kills and Lauren Newman collected nine digs.
