SMC vs. Hope

#7 Hope Sweeps Belles

Box Score

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The Saint Mary's volleyball team lost a 3-0 (25-12, 25-13, 25-13) MIAA contest to #7 nationally-ranked Hope College on Tuesday evening.

The Flying Dutch used several runs in each of the three sets to turn closely-played starts into set victories for Hope.  The Belles, meanwhile, were repeatedly stopped short of finding their rhythm against Hope. 

Saint Mary's was lead by Lorna Slupczynski and Lindsey Stuss on offense as they each had six kills.  Meghann Rose, meanwhile, added 10 digs for the Belles in the loss and Danie Brink had four service aces.

The Belles will look to bounce back in a big way when they travel to Olivet on Friday for an MIAA contest against the Comets at 7:00 p.m.
