Rachel Popp had 11 digs and three aces. Trinity Oertel added four aces and five digs. Grace Myers tallied 10 digs.

“Whiteland came out fired up and played a really good first set. We made a few too many errors in the first set but played really well in sets 2 and 3,” Dragons coach Kelli Gabehart said. “Keeping a team at five points or under is very difficult. The team is playing really good right now and we are ready for our tough conference matches this week.”

The Dragons are next in action Tuesday against Delta.
