The Lady Chiefs held on to beat both John A. Logan College and Madison (WI) College on day two of the Harper Invite in Palatine. Waubonsee edged the Volunteers from southern Illinois in five games. The Lady Chiefs took the first game 25-21 before Logan turned the tables and won the second and third games by an identical 25-21 score. Waubonsee then won a thrilling 25-23 fourth game to force a fifth and final game, which the Lady Chiefs held on to win 15-10. Ashley Prost, filling in for the injured Ellie Martin at setter, tallied a phenominal 52 assists. Erin Bowe led Waubonsee's attack with 18 kills, 24 digs and three serving aces. Laura Lyons added 21 digs, Kaitlyn Richter has 20 digs and Allison Humes chipped in with four blocks. 

The Lady Chiefs then completed a 3-1 performance at the Harper Invite by turning back the Wolfpack in four games to improve to 12-7 overall on the season. Madison won the opener 25-23 before Waubonsee rallied to take the next three games 27-25, 25-18 and 25-17. Again Bowe was the key to Waubonsee's success by recording 11 kills and 28 digs. Lyons nearly duplicated that effort by contributing 10 kills and 28 digs. Prost booked 34 assists and Humes added four more blocks in the victory.
