GOSHEN, Ind. – In its first action in nearly a week, the Goshen College volleyball team could not slow the powerful attack of visiting Davenport University, falling to the Panthers 25-18, 25-15, 25-18 at Gunden Gymnasium Friday night.
The visitors hit at sparkling .303 clip on the night, including .432 in the opening set in which they set the tone. Kelse Moon led all attackers with 14 kills and she had just one error for a .464 hitting night.
The Maple Leafs hit .243 in the opening set, but then struggled to recover from losing that set and finished at just .060 for the match. Senior Hannah Grieser (Goshen, Ind.) led the way with eight kills on just 24 swings.
Sophomore Missy Mackowiak (North Liberty, Ind.) continued her outstanding defensive season with a match-high 17 digs. She has led the team and match in digs in 18 of the Maple Leafs 19 matches. Junior Stacy Wyse (Archbold, Ohio) added a double-double with 26 assists and 10 digs, while sophomores Melanie Meyer (Elkhart, Ind.) and Jaime Stack (Goshen, Ind.) each had six kills.
Goshen (7-12) continues its off week from Crossroads League play as they play in a tri-match with Bluffton University and host Anderson University tomorrow.
