Final Stats

Baltimore, Md. - Junior Evann Slaughter (Clinton, Md.) had an outstanding .414 hitting percentage while recording a team-high 14 kills, but the Stony Brook volleyball team fell short of beating UMBC, losing in straight sets (25-22, 27-25, 25-19) Sunday afternoon at RAC Arena.

The Numbers Game

  • Freshman Melissa Rigo (East Northport, N.Y.) posted 11 kills and has now recorded double-digit kills in 19 straight matches to begin the season.
  • This was the fourth time this season Slaughter hit at least 40% with double-digit kills. Her two attack errors matched a season low.
  • Freshmen Shelby Tietjen (Smithtown, N.Y.) and Stephanie McFadden (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) each had three blocks for Stony Brook.
  • UMBC recorded 15 team blocks.

Key Moments

  • Stony Brook trailed the entire first set, but fought valiantly to gain momentum late. Trailing 21-17, the Seawolves recorded three straight points all by Slaughter. She picked up two kills on sets from freshman Nicole Vogel (Costa Mesa, Calif.) and then blocked a UMBC attack to cut the Retrievers lead to 21-20. However, UMBC bounced back with a kill and an ace and ended up pulling away to win 25-22.
  • The second set was a dogfight that featured 12 ties and five lead changes. The Seawolves led 22-21, but UMBC quickly tied on its sixth block of the set. The Seawolves took leads at 23-22 and 25-24, but could not put UMBC away. Hannah Schmidt won the set for the Retrievers with a pair of late kills.
  • The Seawolves got off to a great start on two Slaughter kills and a service ace, leading to a 5-1 lead. UMBC quickly responded with 11 of the next 15 points to go up 12-9. Rigo and Slaughter kept the Seawolves in it, and Rigo gave SB an 18-17 lead on her kill from Vogel. But it was all UMBC after that. The match was tied 19-19 when Schmidt notched an ace that started a 6-0 run to the end.
