The Black team rallied from behind to beat the Gold squad, 19-25, 25-12, 13-25, 25-13, 15-12, in a much more exciting match than last year, when the Grey team swept all five games. The game benefits Mott Community Collegte athletes through the Bruin Club, which is the booster group for the school.

Also on the roster was Gabby Ducharme of Durand, Jennifer Hurand and Connor Morrish of Flushing, Brianna Woods of Atherton, Sara Frantangelo of Goodrich, Molly Moreman of Mt. Morris, Chelsea Potter of Byron and Lauren Zepeda of Fenton. The Black team was coached by Durand coach Brent Maynor.

Morris, Leecia Barnes of Beecher and home-schooler Rebecca Boone. Coaching the Gold team was Shawn Andrews of Flushing.
