The Davis College Falcons volleyball team hosted a tri-match on Saturday, losing to Christendom College Crusaders 3-0 and then bouncing back to beat HVIAC foe, Culinary Institute of America Steels, 3-0.
The first contest of the day was a clash of two top 10 ranked teams in the latest USCAA National Coaches Poll. Christendom College Crusaders came into Saturday’s match with a number 3 ranking and Davis College landed the number 7 spot. Five of the Crusader starters are seniors and that experienced showed as they came out strong on the road against a younger Falcons squad. Christendom would commit only 12 errors the entire match as the Falcons had that number in the first set alone. Davis fought hard but were outplayed in all three sets losing 25-10, 25-14, and 25-14.
For Davis, Erica Stockwell (Norwich, NY) led all players with 57 digs while teammate Linnea Sweeney (Cortland, NY) had 6 kills. Christendom was led by 9 kills from Michaela Pennefather (Nokesville, VA) and 18 assists from Gemma McMahon (Binghamton, NY).
The second match of the day was a neutral match-up between Christendom College and the Culinary Institute of America. Christendom was all business at they took all three sets handily.
The last match of the day was a Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) match between Davis College and the Culinary Institute of America. Culinary, who was only able to bring 6 players on the trip was faced with an injury to an ankle injury to Abigail Russow. Abigail was able to tough it out but was extremely limited. This combination led to a lopsided victory for the Falcons as they won by scores of 25-4, 25-6, and 25-6.
Stockwell once again came up with a wide range of digs posting 46 in this contest. Sweeney led both teams in kills with 9 to go with 9 service aces and Loryn Sanders (Chambersburg, PA) contributed with 20 assists. Newcomer, Michaela McLeod (West Milford, NJ), also had 7 service aces and 5 kills.
Next up for Davis College (6-3) is a non-conference match with local rival, SUNY Broome. That match takes place at Broome on Thursday, October 11, at 6:00 p.m.
