Women's finish second in SUNYAC

Kelly Edinger sets to Jessica Christopher.

The Fredonia volleyball team made it all the way to the SUNYAC Championship match before falling to the New Paltz Hawks, 3-0, in the finals on Nov. 9.

The Devils now stand at 23-11. They find out on Monday, Nov. 10, if they will receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. However, given their No. 7 ranking in the region, it is an outside chance.

New Paltz (31-5) won by scores of 25-19, 25-16 and 25-19 and will gain an automatic bid to the NCAA Tourney.

Paulina Rein (Baldwinsville, N.Y./Baldwinsville) led the Devils with eight kills and Sara Madison (Rochester, N.Y./Penfield) had six. Kelly Edinger (Rochester, N.Y./Greece Athena) had 19 assists.

Lauren Hokaj (Lancaster, N.Y./St. Mary's) had 17 digs and Rein had 16. Jane Garrity (Victor, N.Y. / Victor) had five blocks.

Hokaj and Rein were named to the All-Tournament Team.

"We obviously didn't get the result we were looking for," said head coach Geoff Braun. "... but we learned a lot about preparing ourselves (for the tournament.)"

With no seniors on the roster, the Devils, who also finished second in the regular season, are in position to make a run at the championship again next year.
