The Indians just couldn't finish.
"Jaylynn is a strong hitter, we all know that," Kern said. "She's really smart with the ball, she did a nice job today putting the ball away."
Sandwich did, though, win its pool and beat Serena in the semifinals.
The Indians beat Flanagan-Cornell 9-21, 21-16, 16-14, Reed-Custer 21-14, 21-15 and Harvard 21-10, 21-14 in pool play and Serena 21-5, 21-12 in the semifinals. Rome and Sophia Datoli had 23 kills for the day, Vana 20 kills and 29 digs, Knepper 86 assists and 20 digs and Tornga 40 digs.
"We came in struggling this week," Kern said, "and it was good coming out, knowing where we are at."
