Fallis helped the Dragons lock in the No. 2 seed for the conference tournament with a 2-0 week vs. Walsh and Malone.
Anchoring the back row, Fallis averaged 6.50 digs per set in six games. She had 22 against Walsh, a pivotal matchup that dropped the Cavaliers to the No. 3 seed and elevated Tiffin to No. 2.
Fallis also came through with 17 digs against Malone, another playoff-qualifying team, for TU's 10th win in the league standings. The Dragons held the Pioneers to a .157 hitting percentage in the win.
