Scranton Wins Two On Tourney's Final Day

Scranton Wins Two On Tourney's Final Day

PITTSBURGH, Pa.—The University of Scranton rebounded from a pair of losses Friday evening to post wins over Penn State-Behrend, 3-2, and Bridgewater (Va.), 3-1, today at the Carnegie Mellon Invitational.

The Royals, now 7-8, opened tournament play Friday evening with a 3-0 loss to Defiance College (Ohio). Freshman outside hitter Julia Crilly (Rochester, NY/Aquinas Institute) led Scranton with seven kills and 12 digs, junior libero Marissa Every (East Norriton, Pa./Mt. St. Joseph Academy) finished with 15 digs, and junior setter Juli Woods (Wallingford, Pa./Strath Haven) had six assists and five total blocks.

In a 3-1 loss to Carnegie Mellon late Friday, Crilly had 14 kills and 30 digs and junior outside hitter Jenell McFadden (Springfield, Pa./Merion Mercy Academy) recorded 14 kills and 10 digs.

Today, McFadden and Crilly posted 'double-doubles' in kills and digs to lead the way. McFadden and Crilly combined for 27 kills and 28 digs in the win over Penn State-Behrend and then combined for 23 kills and 28 digs against Bridgewater. Every came through against Penn State-Behrend with 30 digs and Woods contributed 24 assists.

Every closed out the tournament with a 19-dig effort against Bridgewater and junior setter Emily Keim (Bethlehem, Pa./Liberty) finished with 26 assists.

The Royals will return to action next Saturday, October 1, against Moravian College in the first of two round-robin competitions at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, beginning at 3:30 p.m. On Sunday, Scranton meets four-time defending champion Juniata at 10:00 a.m. and the Merchant Marine Academy at 12:30 p.m.
