The Orange and Blue traveled to Baltimore, Md. to compete against Loyola Maryland at 7 p.m. Friday night. After three competitive sets, the Greyhounds came out on top, bringing the woman’s season to an unfortunate end.

The Bison fell behind early in the first, trailing Loyola 4-1. They were able to catch up and narrow the score to 4-3. After a few runs, the Greyhounds finished the set 25-12, the biggest gap of the game. The second set was led by the Bison, who gained the first lead of the match 6-5 and held onto that lead. The Greyhounds, however, were able to make a comeback in the set after two back-to-back kills and service aces. The Bison continued to fight, but Loyola was able to take the second set victory. They were never able to regain the lead in the third set and ended up losing the final set 25-21.

Despite the unfortunate loss, the women put on an exceptional performance. Sandra Korusiewicz ’23 and Allie Lopez ’24 both ended with six kills and Jordan Hardy ’25 with 16 digs. Sarah Ramirez ’24 also earned an impressive 12 assists. “I think we played well and showed that we are a strong team that should not be underestimated,” Lopez said.

The Bison finished the season 3-13 in Patriot League play and 7-18 in overall play. Lopez says the team plans to get stronger – both mentally and physically – in order to be ready for the season and begin again strong in the spring.
