HARD KNOCKS KEEP COMING WITH WINLESS WEEKEND
Beaver Falls, PA – Geneva’s women’s volleyball team has already endured a season’s worth of adversity. With the loss of three players in the first two weeks of the season, the last thing the Golden Tornadoes needed was back to back winless weekends. On Saturday, Geneva dropped two more matches at the Hiram College Tournament and fell to 0-8 on the season.
The first match resulted in a 3-1 loss to St. Mary’s College by scores of 30-22, 25-30, 30-27, 30-22. Adrian Blake led the offense with 15 kills, while teammate Blair Bruce and Michelle Zimmovan had nine kills each. Brandi Snavely led the way with 47 assists.
In match number two, Geneva dropped a 3-0 decision to Texas Lutheran by the scores of 30-20, 30-23, 30-20. Blake once again led the offense with 11 kills.
Geneva will attempt to change its fortunes on Monday night when it finally gets the opportunity to play a match on its home court. The Golden Tornadoes will welcome long-time AMC foe Point Park University to Metheny Fieldhouse for a 7 pm match.
For the second year in a row, Geneva’s ABET-accredited engineering program placed in U.S. News & World Report’s Top 100 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs in the nation.
