    The Commodores passing was graded at 2.11. Coach Becky Genet said the goal is a 2.25 grade but the team had been under 2.00 most of the season, “so we passed the ball a lot better.”
    Hubert, the team’s only senior, took advantage of the improved passing to go 42 for 45 spiking with a team-high 16 kills. She also made three blocks and 23 digs.
