Eagles Hold Off Volleyball In Season Opener
Kazalas led the Greyhounds (0-1) with 14 kills, hitting .250 with just four errors in 40 swings, while Cichosz tallied 12 kills against the Eagles.
Cindy Okpegbue had a match-high 20 kills for Coppin State, and Ariel Richard added 15.
The Greyhounds did not lead by more than two in the first two sets, but a Cichosz kill gave them a seven-point advantage, 17-10, in the third. The Eagles, however, reeled off four points in a row to close the gap to 17-14, and they added four of the next five points to tie the set at 18-18 on an Okpegbue swing.
After rotating to the back row, Okpegbue served an ace to give Coppin State a 19-18 lead. A ball-handling error and an attack error by the Eagles put Loyola back in front, 20-19. Richard tied the set at 20-20, but Corri Waters had a kill for Loyola, giving the Greyhounds another lead.
Loyola went up two, 23-12, after an Okpegbue miscue, but Coppin State forced extra points, tying the match at 24-24. Two Coppin State errors, however, gave the Greyhounds the set.
Kara Schiffer led the Greyhounds with 17 digs, while Kazalas added nine and Anna Eckstein had seven in her collegiate debut. Waters finished with four total blocks, and Lauren Andersen tallied 35 assists and eight digs.
Loyola returns to action Saturday in Philadelphia to play NJIT at 2 p.m. and the host Explorers at 7 o'clock.
