Edmond Memorial moves on

Edmond Memorial coach Natalie Murray wasn't necessarily pleased with her team's performance.

Still, the Bulldogs beat Tulsa Union, 3-0 (25-11, 25-21, 26-24). It marks the second straight season Edmond Memorial has eliminated the Redskins in the quarterfinals.

“The girls just got a little complacent,” Murray said about the final two sets. “The first set of the match was really good. The second set we started to relax and started trying new things, and unfortunately we weren't being aggressive enough and not taking care of business.”

Edmond North cruises

A sluggish start failed to derail Edmond North thanks to 12 straight points in the first game with senior Mallory Fox serving.

With Owasso leading 12-7, Fox helped quickly turn the match to the Huskies' favor as they rolled to a 3-0 victory (25-12, 25-21, 25-14) to advance to the semifinals.

Owasso jumped to a 2-0 lead in the final game, but the Huskies scored eight straight points.
