Kenyon volleyball played their final two games of the season this past Saturday against Bethany College (W.Va), and Waynesburg University (Penn.). The Ladies struggled against Bethany, losing 3-0, but rallied the following game against Waynesburg, winning all three sets and marking a victorious end to their season.
The first set against Bethany proved to be slightly challenging for the Ladies, as they lost 25-17. The next set appeared to be even more of a struggle, as Kenyon lost 25-13. The Ladies regained some strength and came close to clinching a win but lost by two points, 25-23. Lauren Kerr ’18 led the team with a total of 13 kills and three blocks, while Jensen Shurbert ’18 led the team with 23 assists and 10 digs.
The Ladies next took on Waynesburg and won a quick three sets. Kenyon dominated the first set and won 25-11. Waynesburg put up more of a fight in the second set and gathered 20 points, but Kenyon perservered and won 25-20. The third match more closely resembled the first set, as Kenyon won 25-13, giving the Ladies a shutout win in their last game of the season. Kaitlyn Power ’15 led the team with 10 kills, while Shurbert again tallied the most assists with a total of 29, beating her record from the last game. Katie Goulder ’16 led the team with 14 digs.
The team finished their season with an overall record of 24-6 beating their record from last season of 23-4. Unfortunately, the team was unable to win any North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) games, and did not improve their conference record of 6-2 from the previous season. The Ladies will now take some time off before they begin practicing again in the spring.
