The Tigers were off and running to open the match. With the opening frame tied, 6-6, Clemson outscored the Terriers 19-6 to take game one. Four of Curtis’ six aces came in set No. 1. Sophomore right side hitter Solei Thomas gave Clemson a lift in the second set, killing all four balls set her way and helping the Tigers hit .611 for the set. In the third, it was junior middle hitter Alyssa Deloney who registered a perfect hitting line. Deloney, like Thomas in the second, killed all four balls passed in her direction.
