Ladies volleyball lost two matches this past weekend, the first at home versus Oberlin College on Friday, Oct. 25 and then away at Denison University on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Despite coming off of their first victory of the season against Allegheny College and a fierce fight against Oberlin, the team couldn’t manage to bring back another win. In their first match against Oberlin, Kenyon gained a tenable lead by winning the first set 28-26.
After losing the second set 26-24, the Ladies rallied to win the third set 25-22, giving them a 2-1 advantage. The momentum shifted, however, and Oberlin won the remaining two sets 25-16 and 15-11.
Looking to rebound the next day against Denison, the Ladies dropped the match in three straight sets, 0-3.
“Denison is a good team; they’re probably going to finish second in the conference,” Head Coach Katie Charles said. “[Now] if we win [versus Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU)], we’ll be alone in seventh place and we’ll move on to the conference playoffs. Otherwise, there will be three teams tied for seventh place: us, Allegheny and OWU.”
Last night, the Ladies did just that, beating OWU 3-1. Kenyon will conclude its 2013 regular season when the team travels to Lexington, Ky. on Saturday, Nov. 2 to compete in the Transylvania University Tournament.
