BULLDOGS SPLIT AT ROBERT MORRIS, TOP SAINT FRANCIS (NY), 3-0, FALL TO HOST RMU, 3-1, SATURDAY
HANOVER, NH - Led by 24 kills over two matches from freshman Maria Scocca (Melrose, Mass.) Saturday, the Bryant University volleyball team split its matches at the Robert Morris Tournament, topping Saint Francis (NY), 3-0, before falling to host RMU, 3-1, in the nightcap.
Scocca led the Bulldogs in both contests, recording 10 kills in the win over the Terriers (0-21), with 14 more coming against Robert Morris (12-6). The rookie also recorded a team-high seven blocks on the day (2 solo, 5 block assists).
Senior co-captain Delia Glover (Marston Mills, Mass.) registered 44 digs on the day to lead the Bulldogs (12-8), while freshman Hilary Andrews (Tipp City, Ohio) totaled 15 kills with 17 digs and a team-best five service aces.
The first contest saw Bryant take an easy 3-0 win from Saint Francis (NY), the Bulldogs' third such win of the season. The Terriers never got within 10 points in any set.
The nightcap brought stiffer competition to the court for the Bulldogs, who took the first set, 25-22, before falling in three-straight closely contested games.
The Bulldogs stay in the Keystone State for their next matchup, a 1 p.m. contest against Saint Francis (Pa.) on Sunday, October 5.
