The Kenyon volleyball team accrued more losses this past weekend at the Marietta College River City Classic in Marietta, Ohio. The Ladies faced Marietta on Saturday, and were unable to clinch a win.

Kenyon began strong in the first set and led Marietta 17-11, but Marietta gained control and won 25-20. The second and third sets had similar outcomes, as Marietta won 25-19 in the second and 25-21 in the third. Nevertheless, Kenyon still displayed some of their skills, with Tierney McClure ’18 gathering 15 digs.

The team’s second game, against Heidelberg University (Marietta, Ohio), posed a greater challenge. Their opponent again swept three straight sets, with Kenyon posing the first set 25-15, and the second set 25-11. The Ladies put up a stronger fight in the third set, but lost 25-17.

On Tuesday, the team faced nationally sixth-ranked Wittenberg University. The Ladies struggled and still did not win a set. They lost 25-9 in the first and third sets. The second set seemed more promising, but Wittenberg captured it 25-19.
