MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State Women's Volleyball team split a pair of matches at Hamilton College on Saturday afternoon, falling to the host Continentals 3-1 in the opener but topping St. Lawrence 3-1 in the second match.
In the first match against Hamilton, the Mustangs played the Continentals close in every set. However, a lack of hitting efficiency by Morrisville ultimately gave Hamilton the upper hand as they picked up 34 hitting errors compared to the Continentals 18.
Offensively, the Mustangs looked to feed Megyan Merrill (Millport, N.Y.) who responded by putting away 16 kills, leading all players in the match despite the loss.
Morrisville turned things around in the second match, behind three strong offensive performances. Merrill added 16 kills again, but 15 kills by Amelia Baratier (Liverpool, N.Y.) and 11 off the hand of Helena Hanes (Brockport, Pa.) gave the Mustangs a little extra.
The Mustangs who sit in second place in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) North Division will wait for news regarding their quarterfinal status. NEAC playoff action begins on Tuesday. Information regarding quarterfinal host sites will released as it becomes available.
