This past week women’s volleyball didn’t go as planned for them.
On September 27th, IUP lost a tough battle against Shippensburg Raiders after playing 5 sets, the lost 3-2 at their home opener. IUP started off hot with our home court advantage and won the first set 25-10! But the Raiders quickly responded and won the next set 25-21. We then answered back and won 25-18! Unfortunately, we couldn’t keep the lead and lost the fourth set 25-14 and the last set 15-9. The girls still played very well as Brooke Little had a match high of 12 kills!
On September 28th, the girls faced another defeat. This time we lost 3-0 in the match. The first match we lost 25-12, the second set was a close 25-22 loss, and the third was 25-18. Even though we lost we still had some great team play! Alyssa Kimmel had a match high of 16 digs and served 2 aces. Jessica Ignace and Caroline Walsh had a combined 5 blocks.
(Next game will be Friday, Oct 4th @ West Chester @ 7:00 pm)
