Spartans Rebound and Down the Wolverines

DOVER, DEL- The York College women’s volleyball team bounced back from Tuesday’s disappointing five game loss to Gallaudet as they defeated Wesley College 3-0 in Capital Athletic Conference action on Thursday in Dover, Del. The Spartans have won seven of their last eight matches as the Spartans improve to 16-4 overall and 3-1 in the CAC. Wesley falls to 5-6 overall and 1-2 in their first year in the CAC.

The Spartans won the match in dominating fashion as the scores were 30-10, 30-20, and 30-5.

The Spartans were led by freshman Alishia Waltermyer (Brogue, Pa./Red Lion) as the middle hitter had 10 kills with just two errors in 20 attempts as she hit .400 for the match. Sophomore Casi Brough (Spring Grove, Pa./Spring Grove) added five kills to the Spartan offense. Ten Spartans recorded at least one kill in the match as head coach Sue DuMars got some valuable court time for her reserves.

Senior setter Katie Hertz (Glenville, Pa. /Delone Catholic) handed out 26 assists in addition to 14 digs. Senior libero Laura Krajewski (Livonia, Mich. /Stevenson) and Lindsay Schorner (Spring Grove, Pa./Spring Grove) each added five digs to the Spartans’ defensive effort.
