Stonehill Keeps Rolling With 3-0 Win At Dominican

Sophomore Delia Phillips led all players with 15 digs in tonight's win at Dominican.

Skyhawks have swept opponent in four of last five matches

ORANGEBURG, N.Y. (September 27, 2013) – The Stonehill College volleyball team continued its dominance of late, sweeping Dominican College tonight at the Hennessy Center by set scores of 25-20, 25-23, and 25-21. Stonehill has now won five matches in a row, and seven of its last eight, with the only misstep being a five-set heartbreaker the Skyhawks suffered in their home opener against American International College.

Stonehill was led offensively by sophomore Kelsey Weymouth (North Attleboro, Mass./North Attleboro), who hit .500 with a team-high ten kills, and junior setter Emily Iverson (Elmhurst, Ill./York), who dished out a match-best 37 assists to go with seven kills and four digs. Sophomore Delia Phillips (St. James, N.Y./Smithtown East) led all players with 15 digs, while junior Mary-Kate Catton (San Diego, Calif./Academy of Our Lady of Peace) contributed eight kills, three digs, and a solo block for the Skyhawks.

Dominican, which came into tonight on an eight-match skid, was paced by freshman Tori Dexter (Selah, Wash./Selah), who posted team-highs in kills (11), and digs (12). The Chargers hit only .165 as a team, while Stonehill nearly doubled that mark with a .333 hitting percentage in the match.

Stonehill (9-4, 2-1 NE-10) will remain in New York and travel to Old Westbury tomorrow, where the Skyhawks will wrap up their two match road trip with a 2 p.m. contest at the New York Institute of Technology. NYIT is a perfect 10-0 so far this season, including a 3-0 sweep of Northeast-10 preseason favorite and 2012 East Region champion New Haven. Dominican (1-12, 1-2 CACC) will try to prevent its losing streak from reaching double figures tomorrow when it hosts the University of the Sciences (Pa.) for a match at noon.
