"They've been playing really well together, I've been very pleased with how they've been coming a long as a team," Ronda Schlecte said. "I thought we were a little better tonight as far as helping each other out when there's a shanked ball, picking each other up."
Tabbert led the team with four kills while Schlecte and Burton each had three. Schlecte had four aces and Quast and Tabbert added eight each. Quast also led the Comets with eight assists.
Kendall Knop had a strong game with seven digs and a number of impressive serves, and Schlecte finished second on the team with five digs.
"We have a really strong team this year," Ronda Schlecte said. "It's not just one or two players, it's the whole team. It's a nice thing to have."
Stew-Stras is now 3-0 on the year and 1-0 in the NTC. They resume conference play tonight, traveling to face Beecher City.
