Volleyball Grinds Out Four Set Win Over Holy Cross
The Army West Point Volleyball team scratched and clawed its way to a hard-fought victory over conference foe Holy Cross on Saturday night at Gillis Field House. "I have to give a lot of credit to Holy Cross tonight," Head coach Alma Kovaci Lee said. "They were very tough, and their defense was incredible. We didn't play our best game today, but it's good to know we can grind out a victory when we aren't at our best." After a strong first set that saw the Black Knights hit at a .323 percentage, the team faced a resilient challenge from the Crusaders who dominated set two, 25-13. Army played most of the third set from behind, and the teams fought to seven tied scores in the frame. Army was able to pull through 25-23. In the fourth, Holy Cross fought back from a four-point deficit in the middle of the set to jump ahead and take a four-point lead of their own at 21-17. Army would not be denied in this one however, fending off two consecutive set points before claiming the match in the fourth set 26-24. Read more.
