In the second game Dachelet notched six kills to lead the squad despite a close 30-26 loss.  In the third she had four kills in eight attacks.  The Cardinals dropped the final game 30-21.

At setter, Emily McGlynn (Tallahassee, Fla./Leon) had 30 assists in the match.  Bethi Pritchard's (New Orleans, La./Ben Franklin) 13 digs was a team-high for the sophomore defensive specialist.

The Cardinals will host conference opponent Mary Washington this Wednesday at the DuFour Center beginning at 7:00 p.m.
