The Nyack College Women's Volleyball team faced both American International College and Assumption College throughout the tournament in Laska Gymnasium at Assumption College. The Warriors fought through both games, but unfortunately fell short of a victory.

How It Happened:
Game 1 
The Warriors began the day competing against the AIC Yellow Jackets. Sophomore Libero Kelsi Collins (Tarpon Springs, FL) stepped into the role of Outside Hitter for the Warriors and tallied 9 digs while still remaining a vital part of the offensive line. Sophmore Lindsay Miller (Chandler, AZ) earned 9 kills, 6 digs, and recorded 1 block against the Yellow Jackets demonstrating both her offensive and defensive skills as well. Despite the strong efforts displayed, the Warriors lost the match to AIC in 3 sets with scores of 25-15, 25-18, and 25-9

Game 2
The final match of the day, and for the Warriors, was against the hosting team; the Assumption College Greyhounds. Miller led the team with 26 attempts and 7 kills. Close behind her was sophomore Jillian Smith (Oceanside, CA), with 20 attempts and 6 kills, also recording a total of 3 aces throughout the match. Freshman Elizabeth Moore (Surprise, AZ) accumulated 2 service aces and a team high of 9 digs in her first court appearance with the Warriors. The Warriors fiercly competed against the Greyhounds with long rallies and progressively closed the gap in score each set. The match closed in 3 sets with scores of  25-17, 25-19, and 25-22 in favor of Assumption College.

Words From Coach
"I am proud of our progress as a team. We fought hard and enjoyed every moment on the court as a team. It is the beginning of what is going to be a great season."
