Against the Yellowjackets the Lady Chiefs dropped the first game 27-25 before falling behind two games to none with a 25-18 loss. Waubonsee battled back to win the third game 25-20. However the Yellowjackets again edged the Lady Chiefs (10-7) in a hard fought fourth game 26-24 to take the match. Bowe again led the way as she registered 13 kills and 24 digs. Laura Lyons had 25 digs, Allison Humes contributed three blocks, and Ashley Prost booked 24 assists after an injury forced the Lady Chiefs' regular setter Ellie Martin to the sidelines.
