Volleyball drops fourth straight

The women’s volleyball team continued its slow start to the season, losing to St. Johns (4-1) in straight sets, 25-17, 25-19, and 25-19.

Junior Alicia Nelson led Stony Brook with 8 kills, while senior Ashley Headen contributed 7 kills. Sophomore setter Corrine Perry led the team in assists, with 17.

With the loss the Seawolves fall to 0-4.  

Poor starts to the sets were key factors in the loss, as Stony Brook was forced to try to come from behind.  

In the first set, Stony Brook was down 12-5 early, and while small rallies put them back in the game, it wasn’t enough to come out on top. The Seawolves eventually lost the set, 25-17.

The second set was no different, as the Seawolves were down early, 10-5. At one point, Stony Brook cut the lead to two but eventually fell to the Red Storm, 25-19.

Overall, consistency seemed to be the problem for the Seawolves. Playing at a high level during one period of time and poorly at another had them playing catch-up throughout the match.

The Seawolves will look to improve on the winless record Sept. 3 when they visit New Haven to kickoff the Yale Invitational.

Conference games start Sept. 19, where Stony Brook hopes to take advantage of the softer part of its schedule.
