American Gets Past Volleyball In Patriot League Opener
WASHINGTON, D.C. - American University downed the Loyola University Maryland volleyball team, 25-22, 25-14, 25-23, in Washington, D.C. on Friday night in the Patriot League opener for both teams.
Aleksandra Kazala led American (8-6 overall, 1-0 Patriot League) with 12 kills as well as tallying 15 digs. Kennedy Etheridge contributed 30 assists. Kristen Largay and Shannon Webb had 13 and 11 digs, respectively for the Eagles.
Loyola faced the Eagles, the unanimous preseason Patriot League favorites and held its own for a majority of the first set. American held the slight advantage for a large portion until the Greyhounds tied up the score, 15-15.
Loyola then tallied four of the next five to take the lead at 19-16 on a block by Ashley Kozer and Mackenzie Fedota. The Eagles answered with three of their own to even the score to 19-19, causing Loyola to call a timeout.
Kills by Ashley Kozer and Ernst out of the break put Loyola ahead again by two, 21-19, but American took six of the next seven and won the set 25-22.
The Greyhounds led the second set, 4-3, before the Eagles ran away with six-straight to take the advantage with 9-4. From there American would only increase the deficit, not letting Loyola get any closer than four.
A five-point run by the Greyhounds allowed them to close the gap and pull into a slight lead, 16-15, on a Molly Jarvis kill in the third set, causing American to call a timeout.
Six-straight by the Eagles brought them to the biggest lead of the set to that point, 21-16, but Loyola answered with four of its own, 21-20, and the set was within one. Tallies were exchanged for the remainder of the set, but a kill by Kazala took the set 25-23.
Loyola travels to Annapolis, Md. to face Navy tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
