Belles Suffer Five-set Loss at Adrian

ADRIAN, Mich. - For the second consecutive match, the Saint Mary's volleyball team fell in a five-set dual in MIAA play, this time to Adrian.  The Bulldogs took the 3-2 (25-21, 15-25, 25-17, 20-25, 15-9) decision.

After falling in a close first set, the Belles stormed through the second set 25-15 with a .269 attack percentage to tie the match at one set apiece.  Two sets later, Saint Mary's used a .227 attacking clip with 14 kills to square the match at 2-2.  In the final set, however, the Bulldogs capitalized on the Belles' miscues to ultimately take the win.
