Kenyon volleyball loses twice on the road, then falls at home


The Ladies volleyball team has played three matches so far in October, going 0-3. They lost two matches on the road in three sets against Allegheny College and DePauw University, before coming back home and losing in straight sets to Denison University. 

On Oct. 2, the Ladies traveled to Meadville, Pa. to take on the Allegheny College Gators. While the Ladies had a few strong spells of play, the Gators dominated most of the match. As a result, Kenyon lost 3-0 to Allegheny.

The Ladies continued NCAC play when they traveled to Greencastle, Ind. to compete against the DePauw University Tigers on Oct. 9. In the first two sets, the Ladies and Tigers were evenly matched. Kenyon had a 17-13 lead in the first frame, before the Tigers stormed back on a 12-3 run to take the set 25-20. The second set saw the Ladies trail 19-18. However, the Tigers went on a run again, winning the second set 25-20. The third set saw DePauw jump out to an early lead and hold onto it for the rest of the frame, finishing Kenyon off in straight sets.

Back at home on Wednesday, the Ladies did not fare much better against Denison, losing in three sets. The Big Red won the first two sets easily. The third set was tied at 19 before the Big Red pulled away to win it 25-22. 

The Ladies are 2-13 this season. They will be back in action on Saturday against Hiram College in Gambier.
