"We came out with great focus and energy today," said head coach Colin Foster. "Drake is a very solid team and we didn't let off the pedal all day."
The Shocker women will play their last conference match of the season on Sunday against Northern Iowa on Senior Day for Lutfiana Budiharto and Delia Damaschin.
