WAYNE, NJ – The Mount Saint Mary College women’s volleyball team (10-16) split their two matches on Saturday, defeating Brooklyn College (10-14), 3-0 (25-15, 25-17, 25-17) in the opener, and then falling short of a miraculous comeback against host William Paterson University (16-5), taking a 3-2 (22-25, 19-25, 25-21, 26-24, 11-15) defeat in their final match.

Junior outside hitter Katie Lynch threw down 14 kills against Brooklyn. Sophomore right side Maribeth Powers followed with nine kills and an astounding hitting percentage of .571. Freshman setter Claire Scully dished out 31 assists.

After falling behind two sets to none, the Knights took the third set, 25-21. Down late in the fourth set, the Knights took the last two points to force a fifth set. The Mount held an 11-5 edge in the final set, but the Pioneers went on an unbelievable run to take the last 10 points and grab the win.
