This Homecoming weekend saw the Shorewomen in action at home in the Penny Fall Classic looking for victory after falling to Hopkins Thursday.
The Shorewomen fell to Johns Hopkins 3-1 (25-15, 25-5, 23-25, 25-15) in Centennial Conference action. The Shorewomen’s victory in the third set was the first set win against Hopkins in 16 years. The meeting saw sophomore Kaitlin Rowan with 13 digs with an additional 11 digs added by sophomore Rita Rivera.
The Shorewomen left the Penny Fall Classic with a loss against Widener 3-2 and a victory over Kean University 3-0. In the match against Widener (27-29, 25-16, 25-17, 19-25, 15-8), freshman Lauren White had a career high 48 assists and 24 digs for her third double-double this season. Rivera also had a personal best of 35 digs, almost doubling her previous record for this season.
In the sweep against Kean, WC broke away from the 8-8 tie in the first set to go 7-1 giving the Shorewomen a comfortable 15-9 lead which eventually led to winning the set 25-22. The Shorewomen were able to repeat this in the second set, breaking a 13-13 tie on a 12-4 run and winning the set 25-17. In the final set, the Shorewomen were again able to pull ahead of Kean 29-27, with sophomore Jenny Lee scoring the match point on a kill.
