Kacey Lyon and Kylie Howell each had six kills to lead the way, Madison Romano served three aces, Emily Eschette had seven digs and Essence Wren finished with 15 assists.
Academy of Our Lady is ranked third in the Division II power rankings behind Lafayette powers St. Thomas More and Teurlings Catholic.
