The offense was led by Kendra Parmenter (Grove City) with 10 kills and Brooke Ruffer (Stryker) with 29 assists.
Seniors Hailey Phillips (Malinta/Patrick Henry) and Lindsay Krohn (Marysville, Ind./New Washington) controlled the defense with 13 and 11 digs, respectively.
At 6 p.m., the Beavers battled the host team, Capital, but lost in four sets (25-18, 26-24, 19-25, 25-23).
