Washington College volleyball played at home against the Bryn Mawr College Owls on Oct. 25.
The team won their series in three straight sets with 12 kills from senior outside hitter Angelina Schaber, 12 assists from sophomore setter Allison McKechnie, and six aces from sophomore outside hitter Giselle Kleinbussink.
Kleinbussink also had nine digs in the three sets.
The first set was decided in a score of 9-25 with the Shorewomen winning. The second finished at 13-25, another win for the team.
The Owls put up a bigger fight in the third set, after going on a five point run thanks to errors as the score hit 13-24, bringing the final score of the third set to 18-25.
“The team performed great against Bryn Mawr. We wanted to play clean and control the game our way, and we definitely did that and the results show,” senior defensive specialist Jordan Fairchild said.
With this win the Shorewomen improved to 8-14 and headed into their next game away against the Muhlenberg College Mules.
Kleinbussink and Schaber led the team in kills with 10 and nine respectively. Kleinbussink had 15 assists as well, while sophomore libero Victoria Kile had 12 digs.
The game went to four sets with the Shorewomen only winning the second 25-22 after they consistenly scored two points to each of the Mules’ one point.
“Against Muhlenberg, we just came up short. They’re a scrappy team and play really well at home and they just got the best of us,” Fairchild said.
The Shorewomen have two final games of the season against Swarthmore College on Nov. 1 and their senior day against Gettysburg College on Nov. 4.
“Senior day is not only our last home game, but our last game of the season. So this is the last time you’ll be able to see our seniors in action in their collegiate careers,” Fairchild said.
