Kazalas, Cichosz Form Top Duo In League
- Stacey Kazalas and Molly Cichosz continue to form the top outside hitter pair, statistically, in the Patriot League. Kazalas leads Loyola with 238 total kills, an average of 3.09 per set, while Cichosz is right behind at 236 and 3.06.
- The duo is ranked sixth and seventh, respectively, in the Patriot League in kills per set and third and fourth in total kills. Lehigh is the only other team in the League to have two players ranked in the top 10 of kills per set.
- Kazalas has posted 10 or more kills in 15 of the Greyhounds’ 21 matches this year, while Cichosz has done so in 14.
Dig It Like Duzey
- Micah Duzey has led the Greyhounds in digs for 19 of their 21 matches this season, posting 10 or more 14 times. Duzey ranks seventh in the Patriot League in digs per set at 3.62, a number that is up from her team-leading mark of 3.36 a year ago.
Making Strides Statistically
- Through 21 matches this season, Loyola has not only shown a four-win improvement over all of last season, the Greyhounds have taken steps statistically that have shown progress.
- Last year, the team hit just .127 cumulatively, but this year, that number is up 49 points to .176, a mark that ranks sixth in the Patriot League. Loyola has raised its kills (11.29-10.54) and assists (10.36-9.94), too, but the biggest gap is the cut in errors per set. The Greyhounds have dropped nearly one error per set this year, 5.62 as opposed to last year’s 6.34.
