Box score vs. Frostburg

On Saturday afternoon, the Hollins University volleyball team traveled to Maryland for the final two matches on their regular season schedule.  Hollins faced St. Mary's College and Frostburg State in a tri-match, having already played both teams earlier in the season. 

In their first match, Hollins squared off with a St. Mary's team that had defeated them back in early September at the Hollins Green Invitational tournament.  The Seahawks got off to a quick start, and behind 17 first set kills, defeated Hollins 25-18.  After falling by the identical, 25-18, score in the second set, St. Mary's looked to finish off their opponents in the third set.  Despite playing their best set of the match, Hollins came up on the short end of a 25-21 score.

Jessie Deese (Cary, NC) recorded 10 kills to led Hollins.  Deese added a team high 13 digs and an assist.  Rikki Martinez (Corpus Christi, TX) added eight kills while Laure Hays (Saginaw, TX) was credited with six kills and accounted for five of Hollins' six blocks.  Lela Moore (Woodleaf, NC) led the team with 22 assists and Emily Lowther (Woodbridge, VA) accounted for 10 digs.

Mandy Goodspeed killed 20 of her 33 attacks and Autumn Fisher added 15 kills.   Mimi Graf had a match high 38 assists and Carissa Hill led the Seahawks with 23 digs.

Tri-Match host, Frostburg State was the final opponent for Hollins.  Having defeated the Bobcats in late September, Hollins looked to duplicate that feat on Frostburg's home court.  However, the Bobcats wouldn't allow Hollins to get out to the quick start they enjoyed in their previous meeting.  Frostburg took the first set, 25-20.  Having just played three sets prior to the start of the match, Hollins began to show signs of fatigue and dropped the second set, 25-13.  A Hollins rally fell short in the third and final set and the road team failed to pick up a much need win by falling to their hosts, 25-22.

Deese once again led the Hollins offense with nine kills while Hays added six and Jordan Persinger (New Castle, VA) recorded five.  Moore added 19 assists and 12 digs, one more dig than teammate Haley Ortiz (Portsmouth, VA).

Aimee Petrides led Frostburg with 14 kills.  Caitlyn Collins handed out 27 assists and April Wolf led the team with 14 digs. 

With the pair of matches on Saturday, Hollins season has come to an end as they did not qualify for the end of season ODAC Volleyball Tournament.
