ASHLAND, Ohio – When the Ashland University volleyball team set off for Hilo, Hawaii for four matches this weekend, there was no question it would be a business trip.
The Eagles took care of business on Friday (Sept. 3) night against St. Martin's, winning 3-0 (25-16, 25-14, 25-18). It is the Eagles' first win of the season as they split on their first day at the Vulcan Classic – hosted by Hawaii-Hilo.
Sophomore outside hitter Brittany Snider (Olmsted Falls, Ohio) racked up a team-high 12 kills in 29 attempts in the win. Junior outside hitter Anesia Benton (Lima, Ohio/Senior) had nine kills and a .471 hitting percentage. Freshman middle hitter Kate Eckels (Loveland, Ohio/Mt. Notre Dame) also added nine kills.
The Eagles play two games on Saturday (Sept. 4) against Montana State (4 p.m. EDT) and host Hawaii-Hilo (9 p.m. EDT).
