BRYN MAWR, Pa. - Bryn Mawr Volleyball was back in action earlier Thursday night in the Class is 1958 Gymnasium for another conference game, this time taking on the Red Devils of Dickinson College. The Owls struggled to get things together and lost in three sets to the visitors (25-12, 25-6, 25-9). Junior Delia Landers led the Owls with two kills and nine total attacks, earning a hitting percentage of .22. Kira Ogoshi and Camille Baechler both led the Owls with six digs each.
Dickinson College advances to 6-9 overall and 1-3 in the Centennial Conference. The Owls drop to 1-11 and 0-3 in conference play.
In the first set the two teams came out the gates battling. An opening kill by Jessie Zong from Delia Landers set the pace for the Owls. Dickinson College was seeking an early lead, however errors got in their way of doing so, placing them at a 6-6 tie with the Owls. After a brief timeout the Owls lost their momentum and the Red Devils went on a five-point run (17-8). Despite Dickinson's lead, the Owls had not given up hope. A kill from Sienna Burnett was one of the last plays of the set showing the Owls' determination to finish the frame out. However, Dickinson edged out the Owls 25-12 to end the first set.
In the last two frames it was evident that the Owls had lost their spark. In the second set the Red Devils went on an early 19 point run dominating the frame with aggressive serving and strong attacks. It wasn't until late in the set that the Owls landed two attacks, one from Delia Landers and another from Nolan Julien (24-5). Despite their effort it was too late in the frame for the Owls to dig themselves out of the hole.
After trading points early in game three, Dickinson College went on a 7 point run highlighted by attack errors and bad sets on behalf of BMC. The visitors kept the pressure on for the remainder of the set, coasting to a 25-9 win.
The Owls will return to action Saturday September 30th for another conference game at Gettysburg College at 1:00 PM.
