The Loyola volleyball team’s season has ended with a three-set loss to in-state rival Navy. The Greyhounds were out-hit .333 to .160, getting fewer kills and committing more errors in each set.

Ann Ernst led Loyola with eight kills and eight digs, but there wasn’t nearly enough firepower at the net as the Greyhounds suffered the 25-18, 25-16, 25-19 loss.

Loyola was unable to get a lead in the first set and only had early ties at 3-3 and 4-4. Loyola kept the match close for the next series of points, and got within one point at 8-7 when the Mids committed one of their few errors. But Navy scored four-straight points to get a cushion and out-paced the Greyhounds to a victory.

Loyola held an 8-7 lead in the second set, but the Mids used a 7-1 run to get out ahead 14-9. Navy used another five-point run to put the set into cruise control as they held a 22-12 lead before taking the set win off an ace by Elena Scarano and kill by Maggie Phillips right after.

Navy built a 10-5 lead in the third set. The Greyhounds were able to get the score back close and remained competitive for the entire set, but were never given an opportunity to even tie the set at they were out-hit .344 to .226 in the set.

Zoe Pawlak had five kills in the final set and finished the match with seven.

Navy had already secured a spot in the Patriot League Championship. Tara Dotzauer led the Mids with 12 kills.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
