The Army West Point Volleyball team completed a championship sweep of the Army Invitational with wins over Rhode Island and New Hampshire on Sunday. Army took the first contest over Rhode Island 3-1 and defeated Iona in straight sets to clinch the tournament title. "This team has been on a mission since the first day of preseason," Head Coach Alma Kovaci Lee said. "It's easy to say you want to win a championship, but its very different to actually back up that talk.
From the beginning, this team has said they want to do it and they have been working so hard to make it happen." Firstie libero Ana Oglivie was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player after totaling 44 digs and compiling a perfect 1.000 reception percentage in the team's three games. Yearling Emmy Barnhorst led the team with 10 kills in the finale vs. Iona and firstie Nikki Lum led the way with 16 assists in the contest. In the team's earlier match against Rhode Island, Courtney Horace (14), Sydney Morriss (12) and Monica Eckford (11) all posted double-digit kills. Hannah Presley followed up on her strong performance on Saturday with a tournament-high 30 assist game. Read more.
