Michelle Jamaica was named to the all-tournament team. Jamaica had eight kills, 53 digs and 10 aces in the event. Lexus Haley had 16 kills, 19 assists, five aces and was 26-of-26 at the line. Ashilia Smith had 14 kills. Katie Hughes had five, as well as 37 digs and three aces.
LC was to play at Gary on Tuesday in a district matchup.
