BALTIMORE, Md. - Junior Blair Snyder and senior Becky Corb combined for 24 kills and 13 digs to help the Greyhounds (7-17) snap a four-match home losing streak with a three-game sweep over the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore (5-23) in a non-conference volleyball match at Reitz Arena on Wednesday night.
The Greyhounds, who snapped a two-match overall losing skid with the victory, took the match with scores of 30-24, 30-15 and 30-16. Meanwhile, the Lady Hawks dropped their third straight and seventh match in the last eight outings.
Snyder led the Greyhounds with a match-high 13 kills while adding five digs. She also hit .360 in the match with just four errors in 25 attempts. With her 11 kills and eight digs in the win, Corb became the second player in Loyola College volleyball history to record 1,000 career kills and 1,000 career digs. She also recorded the 1,500th kill of her career in the second game while recording the milestone dig later in the stanza. Corb joins Shauna Lagatol, '99 as the only players in school history to accomplish the feat.
Freshman setter Yael Rozner led the Lady Hawks with 12 assists and a match-high 13 digs while senior Eriel Jeffery had a team-high six kills.
The Greyhounds return to action this weekend when they face the top two teams in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Loyola will face Fairfield on Saturday afternoon before being entertained by league-leading Iona on Sunday afternoon. The Lady Hawks will travel to Delaware State University on Friday night for a non-conference match against the Hornets.
