08/25/2011 – The women's volleyball opened the 2011 season with a convincing straight set victory over Rochester College. The victory keeps the Saints perfect at the Sturrus Sports & Fitness Center, while the Warriors drop to 3-2 on the season.
The Saints faithful were treated to a solid effort in the home opener. Aquinas swept all three sets (25-11, 25-14 and 25-15) and received major contributions from many team members. Chelsea Phillips and MacKenzie Kolstad paced the Saints with eight kills apiece, while freshman Emily Rice added seven. Nicci Thomas orchestrated an efficient offense that yielded the sophomore setter 28 assists. Senior libero, Sarah LeClair, recorded eight digs to lead the Saints.
The Saints will return to the court on Friday and Saturday as they will compete at the UM Dearborn Invitational.
