Melbourne, Fla. – Coming off a five-set heartbreak at the conclusion of last weekend's tournament, the Lynn University volleyball team (4-1) bounced back and took care of business on Friday afternoon, posting straight-set victories over both Columbus St. (0-6) and Puerto Rico-Mayaguez (1-1) at Florida Tech's Panther Invitational.
Lynn bested Columbus St. in its opener (25-21, 25-22, 25-17) before taking down Puerto Rico-Mayaguez (25-18, 25-22, 25-23) to cap off the action.
Cristina Llorens found her offensive groove on Friday, recording match-high kill totals against both opponents. Initiated by a 14-kill (.520) performance against CSU, the junior finished the day with 24 kills and 17 digs.
The Fighting Knights close out the tournament against Albany St. tomorrow, Sept. 12, at 11 a.m. To learn more about Lynn's volleyball program both on and off the court, log on to LynnFightingKnights.com. Make sure to 'Like' us on Facebook and follow @Lynn_Knights on Twitter and Instagram.
