The Carlow volleyball team dropped its first River States Conference match, 3-0, to Indiana University Kokomo on the road, on Friday, Sept. 15.
The Cougars won their first RSC match of the season, with the 25-19, 25-17, 25-12 victory over the Celtics (6-6/0-1/5-1).
Carlow was led by Kristina Hudock (SR/Uniontown, Pa.), with nine kills and 12 digs. Mia Marmion (SR/Upper St. Clair, Pa.) added 18 digs and Mandy Toman (JR/Beulah, Colo.) had 12. Michaela Koran (JR/North Olmsted, Ohio) had 17 assists.
However, the Celtics have been fighting through several key injuries and struggled with errors, while the Cougars were more consistent in their attack. IUK posted a .205 hitting percentage, while Carlow was in the negative.
The Celtics return to action Sept. 16 against IU Kokomo. Carlow hosts crosstown rival and defending RSC champion Point Park in its first home RSC match Tuesday, Sept. 19.
