Seawolves fall to UNH 3-0

 

 

 

 

 

The Stony Brook Women’s Volleyball team suffered an unfortunate three set loss to the University of New Hampshire, Sunday afternoon.

The Seawolves dropped the first two sets 25-20 and 25-17, before making a strong comeback that fell just short, losing the third set 32-30, dropping Stony Brook to 15-15 overall and 8-4 against the America East.

The Seawolves fought hard the first set, but ultimately lost 25-20 after UNH pulled through for a 23-18 lead late.

The second set was close in the opening frames, but once the score was 10-9 UNH, the Wildcats went on a crucial 9-4 run to take the lead that they would not relinquish.

After the intermission, Stony Brook came out to a strong start in the third set, leading 12-7.

The Wildcats then went on a run, tying the score up at 15.

The Seawolves had two chances to win the set, up 26-25 and 29-28, but the Wildcats were able to rebound, going on a 4-1 run to clinch the set and the match 32-30.

When asked about her team’s performance, coach Coley Pawlikowski responded with, “We did not play to win or play aggressive volleyball today. We tested the water way too long to let a good team feel comfortable about playing again against us and beating us.

We have to keep striving to make changes and learn in order to take that next step.”

Taylor Gillie led the Seawolves with seven kills, while Kaitlin Costello, Melissa Rigo, and Kathy Fletcher all had 6 each.

Stony Brook led 10-7 in blocks. McFadden and Fletcher each had five, which were match-highs, while Gillie added four.

Nicole Vogel led the team with 15 assists, and Hannah Dolan had 11.

Captain Lo Hathaway recorded 17 digs and an ace, moving her to sixth all time in Stony Brook’s single-season digs with 490.

Stony Brook finishes their season the road, playing at Hartford on Friday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m., and at Providence on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 1 p.m.
