 Volleyball improves to 2-1 in SUNYAC

After dropping their first SUNYAC match of the season to New Paltz on Friday, the Blue Devil women's volleyball team rebounded by winning their next two conference matches on Saturday.

The team now stands at 2-1 in the SUNYAC, and 14-3 overall.

Buffalo State was the first to fall on Saturday morning as the Blue Devils handled the Bengals in four sets (25-21, 25-19, 22-25, 26-24). Jessica DiChristopher (Cheektowaga, N.Y. / West Seneca East) and Kristen Stanek (Hamburg, N.Y. / Orchard Park) led the way offensively for the Devils with 16 and 15 kills, respectively. Kelly Edinger (Rochester, N.Y. / Greece Athena) had 51 assists.

The Blue Devils were strong behind the service line, accumulating 12 aces.

Fredonia then quickly swept Plattsburgh in the afternoon match, 3-0 (25-16, 25-12, 25-14). DiChristopher had seven kills and four aces, while fellow middle Jane Garrity (Victor, N.Y. / Victor) had seven kills of her own. As a team, Fredonia hit .373 against the Cardinals.

Fredonia will play their first home matches of the season next weekend at Fredonia's Blue Devil Invitational. They'll play Ithaca on Friday at 7 p.m., followed by Saturday matches against Hilbert at 10 a.m. and Canton at 12:30 p.m.
