Volleyball Defeated on the Road

Melbourne, Fla. – Early deficits in the first two sets put the Lynn University volleyball team in a hole it could not climb out of on Saturday afternoon as the Fighting Knights dropped a 3-0 road decision (25-20, 25-20, 25-20) at Florida Tech in Sunshine State Conference action. Lynn evens out at 5-5 overall (0-3 SSC) while the Panthers improve to 7-3 overall (2-1).

The Blue & White had to play catchup in the first two sets having surrendered 6-0 and 8-1 leads respectively to start each frame.

Cristina Llorens turned it on in the third set, adding six kills to finish with a team-high 12 and reach double figures for the fifth time this season. She also chipped in six digs and two aces.

Nicol Colonna capped off a solid overall performance this weekend, ranking second on the squad with six kills and adding five digs. Morgan Dulaney also put away six points, while middles Claire Angelich and Lydia West combined for seven kills.

Katie Knight led the defense with 12 digs, while Chelsea Castillo set a career-high with five. Setter Marissa Tandron ranked second with eight digs and collected 28 assists.

The Fighting Knights will look to bounce back when they return to Boca Raton next week for three consecutive matches on their home court, starting with a 7 p.m. contest against Barry University on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
