Senior Aliyah Bello knocked down 11 kills and Cherray Wilson and Chloe Kaminski each added eight to lead the way for the Wildcats.
“We were able to outlast the Trojans’ strong front row in the first set, which was tight all the way to the finish,” Blue Springs coach Katie Straka said. “We would surge ahead and they would storm right back with a monster kill or block. We took the momentum from that first set and got a fast start in set two and never looked back. Definite credit to our energy and teamwork for tonight’s result. Setter Lily Letchworth did a great job distributing the ball.”
Letchworth finished with 30 assists as the Wildcats improved to 14-9 overall and 6-3 in the conference.
