After one of their best starts in program history, the Shorewomen split their tri-match this past weekend, placing them at 10-2 this season overall.
Washington College has been shutout in both their losses this season as they fell to Marymount (Va.) 0-3 in their first match.
Junior Kristin Lee led the team with eight kills in the matchup followed by sophomores Caitlin Cooney and Alexis Jordan with five apiece. Marymount, who stands at 13-2, beat WC in each set by at least six points.
The team would rebound, however, with a victory over Lycoming. WC needed to dig themselves out of an early deficit as Lycoming took the first set, 18-25. The Shorewomen would rally off three straight sets to take the match, 3-1. The loss would drop Lycoming to 9-7 on the season.
Again, Lee would lead the team with 13 kills on the day as she currently sits fifth in the Centennial Conference in kills per set (3.36) and second in services aces per set (.62).
Junior Jess Daunoras said the momentum of the team is better than ever heading into Centennial Conference play as they look to continue their consistent play.
“As our coach always says, ‘Great teams play consistently. Once we start doing that, there aren’t many teams that could beat us,’” Daunoras said.
The Shorewomen will need to stay consistent as they take on Gettysburg this weekend. The Bullets hold an 11-4 record overall coming into the contest, sitting second in the Centennial Conference table.
The game will take place this Saturday at 1 p.m. on Gettysburg’s home court.
