The Army West Point Volleyball team won both of its matches on Saturday to claim a sweep of the Black Knights Invitational at Gillis Field House. With wins over Kent State and Bryant, Army (6-3) remains undefeated at home this season with all six of its wins recorded at West Point. Firstie Sydney Morriss was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player after recording 33 kills across the team's three matches.
Morriss was instrumental in Army's third set comeback against Binghamton on Friday in which they fought back from a 17-9 deficit. Another high note in the tournament was the team's defensive corps led by Ana Oglivie and Sayler Butters. "Those two are one of the most dynamic duos in the country in terms of defense," head coach Alma Kovaci Lee said. "They are very good and even today where I changed their positions, they still performed like there was no change at all. Their defense is making our offense work, so I can't say enough about what those two are doing for us." Read more.
