Williams outlasts Springfield in five-set thriller for trip to regional final

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Williams improved to 27-4 on the year with its win on Saturday, while Springfield finished the season at 26-6.

Williams head coach Christi Kelsey commented on the battle with the Pride, "Springfield's a tremendous team... but for us to gun it out in such a way, it makes me proud of these young women." senior captain Emily Doll said, "Volleyball is a game of highs and lows."

Setter Ryan Farley, when asked where the win came from, said, "We really just came together...that's what wins games for us, the team."
