New Haven, Mo: -- At the Lady Rock's last home game it was 100 degrees outside and about 110 degrees inside, at least that is how it felt.  What a difference two weeks can make.

Elise McDonald had a team high, 13 kills and 4 aces.  Blank Willimann stepped it up a notch smashing 7 kills and helping her team to defeat Wright City in two sets 25-17, 25-12.
