Lauren Freed and Devon Rachel each tallied seven kills which were accompanied by Allison Beckman’s 38 assists and McKala Rhodes’ eleven digs.
The College of Charleston finished this season with a record of 27-6 and finished second overall in the CAA standings.

An encouraging way for the Cougars to finish despite the loss fans should be excited about the 2018 Cougars and the talent they will bring back.
Beckman, Rachel, and Rhodes are among the best coming back.
