HOW IT HAPPENED

- The Generals controlled the first set from the outset, commanding an 11-5 advantage. Lynchburg fought back to tie the set at 20 with a Wrightson and Mesa Willis (Dabneys, Va.) block, but W&L took five of the final seven points.

- Lynchburg got hot early in the second, jumping out to a 4-0 lead behind two aces from Katie Heenan (Nokesville, Va.) and a Wrightson kill. The set was later tied seven times before the Generals coasted away with the final four points to ice it.

- Washington and Lee used a 13-1 run to complete the third set and the sweep.

- Maral Tsolmon (Alexandria, Va.) anchored the Hornets' back row in the match with 11 digs, while Heenan dished out a team-high 11 assists.
