BULLDOGS DROP PAIR IN DAY TWO OF HALLOWEEN CLASSIC
Andrews, Glover named to All-Tournament Team
NEWARK - Despite 16 total kills from freshman Hilary Andrews (Tipp City, Ohio) on Day Two of the NJIT Halloween Classic, the Bryant University volleyball team couldn't overcome its opponents, falling to Providence College, 3-0, before dropping a 3-0 bout to host NJIT Saturday afternoon.
After beating the Friars (14-13) in two previous matches, the Bulldogs (16-15) couldn't manage to complete the hat trick of wins, falling short in Saturday morning's contest, 3-0. Led by 10 kills from Andrews, Bryant got its closest in the third set, a 25-21 loss.
Match Two was much of the same for the Bulldogs, who fell 3-0 again in the noon game, this time to host New Jersey Institute of Technology (15-11). Bryant was again led by Andrews, with six kills, while senior co-captain Delia Glover (Marston Mills, Mass.) recorded 13 digs.
Fellow freshmen Jazmin Stoner (Durango, Colo.) and Maria Scocca (Melrose, Mass.) also recorded double-digit kills on the day, each collecting 10.
Glover and Andrews were both named to the all-tournament team for their efforts in the two-day classic.
The Bulldogs return to the court Wednesday, Nov. 5 when they travel to Central Connecticut State to take on the Blue Devils in their final match before hosting the National Transitions Challenge on Nov. 14 and 15 in Smithfield, R.I.
