The Mustangs defeated LAMP (25-15, 25-21), Akron (25-13, 25-15) and Horseshoe Bend (25-10, 25-13) earlier in the tournament.

“I think we definitely showed improvement from last Saturday,” IHS coach Glen Graham said. “We showed consistency all day. I think we’re finding our identity. We played up to our No. 6 ranking all day. Game 2 against McAdory was the best game we’ve played all season.”

Erika Brascome had 19 kills, three blocks and five aces; Unique Robinson had 18 kills and six blocks; Kacie Adams had four kills, 31 assists and six aces; Caley Booth had five aces and 11 digs; and Alma Contreras had six aces and seven digs.
