The Black Knights now head to the Patriot League tournament on a five-match winning streak and have clinched a home match on Tuesday night against Loyola at Gillis Field House. "I am proud of the team for fighting for this win," Head Coach Alma Kovaci Lee said. "I thought we played well in three of the four sets. Our middles did a great job and led our team and our blocking got better towards the end of the match."
Army posted hitting percentages above .300 in three of the match's four sets, highlighted by a .400 mark in the deciding fourth set where the Cadets won 25-12. Emmy Barnhorst was the top offensive threat on the night, recording 13 kills and seven total blocks in the contest.
