THE SKINNY STORY
Susquehanna recorded the final three points of a 28-26 third set to complete a 3-0 sweep of McDaniel.

THE LEADERS
Marlowe Embry (San Jose, Calif./J.H. Pitman) led the Green Terror with eight kills and 13 digs. She also had an ace and block.
• Kendall Hanak (Highlands Ranch, Colo./Rock Canyon) led the defense with 16 digs.
• Emma Lorenzen (Hagerstown, Md./South Hagerstown) added eight kills to the attack.

FOR THE FOES
• Rosina Esposito led the River Hawks with 12 kills while hitting .314 in the match.
• Lizzie Herestofa added 19 digs to steady the defense.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• In the opening set, an Emma Lorenzen kill and block assist helped McDaniel open up an early 5-1 lead. Back-to-back Rosina Esposito kills put Susquehanna in front 9-8 and capped a quick 4-0 burst. Clinging to a 15-13 lead, Veronica Kirchner and Riley O'Dowd put down back-to-back kills to spark a 10-2 close to the set and 25-15 victory.
• An Esposito ace ignited an early 6-0 lead in the second set that put the River Hawks ahead early, 7-3. Susquehanna went on to capture the set 25-12 and take a 2-0 lead in the match.
• After a back-and-forth start to the third set, two kills each from Anna Jezerski (Ellicott City, Md./Howard) and Hayley Mills (Bowie, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) in a six-point stretch helped McDaniel take a 13-7 lead. The River Hawks slowly clawed back into the set, eventually tying the score at 23-all on a Natalie Arm kill. Two Marlowe Embry kills around a Samantha Balsamo kill gave the visitors a 25-24 edge. A service error and Jezerski kill kept the Green Terror in front by one but another Arm kill and pair of McDaniel errors capped the sweep.

THE INSIDE STORY
Anna Jezerski added seven kills and six digs.
