Published: Monday, October 8, 2012 at 10:37 PM.

A point by Shannon McDonald gave Choctaw a 10-7 lead, but a serving error by the Indians gave the Gators a point and a Haley Wagner block pulled Baker to within a point at 10-9. The Gators eventually took a 3-point lead at 16-13 before Choctaw came back and moved in front 20-19, but a 6-1 run by Baker closed out the set and put the Gators up 1-0.

The second set followed a similar pattern to the first one only the Gators were the team leading much of the set.

A kill by Choctaw’s Heather Young tied the set at 13-13. Baker’s Hartley Moate answered Young’s kill with one of her onw to put Baker back in front for good in the set as the Gators pulled away down the stretch to go up 2-0 in the match.

The Indians fell behind 4-0 early in set three before coming back strong behind the play of Taylor Campbell, Alyssa Labare and Kayce Johnson to take the set.

Choctaw continued to battle in the fourth set, but the Gators wouldn’t be denied.

The teams traded points early in the set before Baker took the lead at 7-6 and never trailed again.

Baker’s biggest lead of the set was 18-9 after a Katie Wickery kill was followed by two unforced errors by the Indians. Choctaw did manage to go on a late 11-7 run, but it wasn’t enough as Baker closed out the match.
