Vixens wrap up play at Monarch Invitational

The Vixen Volleyball team fell to the host Monarchs in the final match of the Methodist Invitational Saturday evening, 3-0.  Game 1 was a battle that saw an early 6-6 tie, followed by the Monarchs jumping ahead and the Vixens clawing back several times before ultimately falling 21-25.   The next two games also went to Methodist by scores of 15-25 and 14-25.

Sweet Briar received a standout performance from Erin Zander ('14/Columbia, S.C.) who tallied six kills and nine digs.   Cassidy Jones ('11/Rustburg, Va.) pitched in with six kills and Alexis Rukenbrod ('12/Laurel, Md.) contributed seven digs to the Vixen cause.

Team defense was a strength for the Vixens throughout the match as they recorded 37 digs as a team. 

Sweet Briar returns to action Tuesday, September 7th, hosting Bridgewater College in an ODAC match beginning at 6:30pm in Williams Gymnasium.
