Luke Gadson – Sports Editor

The Owls fought hard for a 3-1 victory over Felician University at Pelz gymnasium Thursday evening. With the university losing a set, the momentum was shifting back and forth throughout this match. The Owls led in almost every category, topping the Golden Falcons in points 62-38, kills 51-27, blocks 4-2, assists 46-24, and digs 69-58. 

Outside hitter Sara Enright, a senior, was all over the stat sheet once again, leading her team to victory with 14 kills, 13 digs, and two aces. Setter Taylor Jones, a senior, had an amazing game offensively, racking up 31 assists and was also making plays on the defensive side finishing with 9 digs. Libero Dylan Marney, a sophomore, also had a great all-around game leading her team in digs with 16 while also having four assists and two aces. 

“It was a lot of positive energy, and it was really exciting coming in from Tuesday’s win and coming out tonight with a win, it’s just more positive energy,” said Enright. This energy was visible from the Owls all game and they look for it to continue as they begin conference games. “I’m just excited to start the conference, we had a good preseason and we’re ready to get going,” said Enright. 

Thursday’s win improves the Owls’ winning record to 10-7. The team has been playing well as they increase their winning streak to two and look to improve it to three as they take on American International College in NE10 conference play on Oct 3.
