Volleyball drops all four matches at Radisson-UCF Invitational


Volleyball drops all four matches at Radisson-UCF Invitational

The FAU volleyball team lost both of its matches at the Radisson-UCF Invitational on Friday.

FAU rallied valiantly from a 2-0 deficit against North Florida in its first match of the day, but ultimately fell in five sets. After dropping the first two sets, the Owls used a 12-1 run that included two kills and a block assist by Kristyna Dzmuranova on their way to a 25-18 win in the third set.

UNF had a 20-16 lead late in set four, but FAU rallied to the set at 20. After a Kaley Read kill, the Owls took five of the next six points to win the set 25-22. Nicole Gerig served FAU to an early 3-0 lead in the fifth set, but the Ospreys took the lead and closed on a 6-3 run to win the set and match.

The first set against Depaul went back and forth and was tied at 23 when back-to-back kills by Isabelle Arboleda and Krystena Castro gave FAU the set. The second set was also close but Depaul used a 9-1 run to close out the set and tie the match. The Blue Demons built a nine point lead in the third set and took the lead in the match 25-16. Depaul had a 17-12 lead in the fourth set and was able to hold off the Owls 25-20 to take the match.

Anne Vaughan had 24 kills on the day to lead the Owls. FAU returns to the court on Saturday for Day Two of the Radisson-UCF Invitational. They play host UCF at 1 p.m. before playing Jacksonville at 5:30 p.m.

Re: Volleyball drops first two matches at Radisson-UCF Invitational

Day two action:

"The Owls fell to host UCF in straight sets in their first match on Saturday.

Cintia Nightingale had double digit digs for the third time in as many matches.

In the nightcap against Jacksonville, the Owls were defeated by the Dolphins in three sets, despite 15 kills by Anne Vaughan.

The Team will travel to Tampa next weekend to compete in the USF Best Western Invitational.
