It’s Nov. 13, 2019. Here’s what’s been going on lately in Saint Anselm College sports.

Women’s Volleyball

The weekend held mixed results for the Hawks, with a four-set win against Saint Rose on Friday and a three-set loss against LeMoyne on Saturday.

In the Friday contest, Saint Anselm needed an extra point to win the final set, but ultimately got the win thanks in large part to 16 kills from junior Jordan Schamp (Plymouth, Mich.) and 13 kills from senior Catie McCarthy (Warrenton, Va.).

On Saturday, senior Madison Sollows (Barnstable, Mass.) led the squad with 10 kills as the Hawks came within two points of winning the first two sets before falling by ten points in the final set.

Saint Anselm (18-9, 8-3 Northeast-10) will finish the regular season with contests against American International and Adelphi on Friday and Saturday.
