The Lions upped their overall record to 20-13 following a 3-1 decision (26-24, 21-25, 25-22, 25-19) over the Hawks, and in the process earned the league’s automatic bid for the NCAA Division III Tournament that starts next weekend.

Huntingdon, which ended its year with an overall slate of 17-19, was led by freshman Kelly Kahumoku and freshman Abby Brown with 13 terminations apiece. Alyssa Eason and Clare Shannon each came through with 22 digs.
