LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Taylor Akana had 22 kills for host Siena College, and Lesli Akeo registered 26 digs for the Saints, as they defeated Loyola University Maryland, 25-21, 25-22, 22-25, 25-17, in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action on Saturday.

Four Loyola players - Faye Lukas (14), Mindy Maloney (11), Jac Bullock (11) and Tina Catanach (10) - had 10 or more kills, as the Greyhounds hit .272, but Siena was better offensively, hitting .429, the best a team has swung against Loyola this season.
