Friendly Confines Of Reitz Arena

  • Loyola University Maryland volleyball returns to Reitz Arena for the first two of three-straight Patriot League matches to played in its home venue.
  • The Greyhounds will host Bucknell University on Saturday, Oct. 8, before welcoming Colgate University the following day. Both matches are slated to start at 2 p.m., and admission is always free.

A Look Back

  • Loyola went on the road for the first time this season in Patriot League and came home from College of the Holy Cross and the U.S. Military Academy with a split. The Greyhounds delivered a four-set win against the Crusaders on Friday night, winning the first set before falling in the second. They were tested in the third frame, but came through with a 29-27 win and then cruised in the fourth.
  • The Greyhounds then opened up a lead in Saturday’s first set at Army before the Black Knights came back to take a 1-0 lead in the match. Loyola, however, won the second set, taking its first set off Army since the 2013 season. The Black Knights, however, came back to close out the set in four.

Defense Makes A Stand

  • Loyola’s win at Holy Cross came as the Greyhounds held the Crusaders to a .127 hitting percentage. The Greyhounds posted 10 total blocks and 64 digs in the four-set victory.
  • Their 10 blocks are tied for their third-most in a match this season, while the digs total rate third.

Ernst Continues To Lead Offense

  • Freshman Ann Ernst continues to lead the Greyhounds’ offensive output this season, averaging 3.89 kills per set. She has posted double-digit kills in 11 of Loyola’s 15 matches this season and has four outings with 20 or more.
  • The Chicago native is also third on the team in digs (103), digs per set (1.91), aces (11) and aces per set (0.20). She has logged double-doubles in kills and digs three times this year.
