The Kenyon volleyball team trekked out to Indiana to play in the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Tournament Sept. 7 and 8. The Ladies finished the tournament 0-4, bringing their season record to 0-8.
The Ladies fought hard against Muskingum University in their first match on Saturday night. They played five sets, with Kenyon coming out on top in the first two at 25-19 and 25-15, but the Ladies struggled to finish it off as Muskingum came back to win the following three sets.
After Muskingum, the Ladies played Webster University, falling 25-23 in a tough second set, and ultimately losing the match in three sets. On Sunday, the Ladies played Defiance College and host Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. The Ladies lost all three of their sets to Defiance, which finished the tournament 0-4.
When Kenyon went up against the Rose-Hulman Engineers, the Ladies once again fell short. Despite the four losses, Co-Captain Sierra DeLeon ’14 earned a spot on the all-tournament team.
Head Coach Katie Charles said that even with the 0-4 record, the Ladies remain positive and focused on the parts of play they control. “We’ve been talking with the team about where and how we’re most successful, and a lot of that comes from strong serve-receive and strong defense,” she said. “And we’ve had [moments] where we’re good with that and moments where we’ve struggled.”
The Ladies will play their first home game in Tomsich Arena at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 against Muskingum University.
