Men’s volleyball bested by number one ranked Juniata College

By Marty Carlino

In a tightly contested match, the Stars were bested in four sets by Juniata College. The Juniata College Eagles entered the matchup as the number one ranked team in the American Volleyball Coaches Association top 15 poll.

After dropping the first set 25-22, the Stars rallied back to capture the second set by a margin of five points (25-20). They dropped the closely-contested third and fourth sets of the match (25-23, 25-15) and were defeated by the Eagles.

The Stars fell to 0 and 3 on the young season but they will look to bounce back as they open conference play February 7 against Loras College.
