Morrisville Sweeps through Second Day of Tourney, Defeat Buffalo State and Oswego State

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State Volleyball program picked up two more early-season wins on Saturday afternoon, defeating both Buffalo State and Oswego State 3-0 in the second day of their home tournament. 

In the first match of the afternoon, the Mustangs played three close sets with the Bengals from Buffalo State.  However, a balanced offensive attack combined with 11 aces proved to be the difference in the three set sweep. 

Megyan Merrill (Millport, N.Y.) led the charge, tallying 11 kills and five of the service aces.  Helena Hanes (Brockport, Pa.) orchestrated the offense, picking up 33 assists. 

Merrill paced the offense again in the second match of the day against the Lakers from Oswego State, picking up 16 kills, the 16th being a record breaker for the Mustangs.  Merrill is now the Morrisville all-time kills leader with 704 in just her junior season. 

The Mustangs also picked up a stellar performance from Elycia Crittenden (Louisville, Ky.) who picked up 10 kills.  Hanes notched 41 assists, while Sam Wolf (Liverpool, N.Y.) recorded 17 digs. 

Morrisville will look to continue to build on their early season momentum as they face two more tough tests tomorrow.  The Mustangs will take on the MIT Engineers at 11 AM before closing out their weekend set with the Penn State-Behrend Lions at 3 PM.
