The Lady 'Cats cruised past Concord – 25-22, 25-9 and 25-18.

The Mt. Lions closed the gap to two at 22-20 but Wesleyan finished them off taking three of the next five points.
Wesleyan never trailed in the second set. The Lady Bobcats built an 18 point lead at 22-4 before putting them away by the 25-9 score.
The Lady Bobcats fell behind in the third set by a 14-8 score but rallied with nine straight points to take a 17-14 lead.
Wesleyan scored the eight of the final 12 points for the win.
The win improved Wesleyan to 9-15 overall and 3-7 in the MEC.
