Cresson, PA - The Hollins volleyball team finished her three match road swing when they faced Mount Aloysius on Saturday morning. The match was less than 20 hours after Hollins fell in Altoona to Penn State on Friday night. The green and gold looked to end the month on a high note as the calendar turns tomorrow.

Hollins tried to shake off the fatigue but the Lady Mounties jumped on their guests in the early stages of the first set and never let Hollins get into the match. The statistics were fairly even but too many Hollins miscues helped Mount Aloysius to a 25-16 win. With all the momentum on the side of the home team, the Mounties used a 13-7 advantage at the net to push their lead to 2-0 by taking the second frame, 25-13. Hollins would finally get into the match and used their own kill advantage to build a seven point lead. However, the host team from Pennsylvania battled back to pull even late in the set. After winning the final two points of the afternoon, the Mounties had come all the way back to turn Hollins away, 27-25.

Kiki Speights registered seven of Hollins 30 kills for the match. Speights also added a block and three digs while middle Charlie Vollmers recorded six kills. Sarah Freeman had 13 assists and six digs with Casey Mahan adding 11 digs, two service aces, and nine helpers.

Sarah Fisher recorded a match high nine kills on her 18 attacks, without an error to lead Mount Aloysius. Emma Pevarnik assisted on 17 points while Kylee Lawson registered 25 digs.

Hollins will return home and await a visit for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's (ODAC) best, when Randolph-Macon comes to town on Tuesday night.
