PSU volleyball adds two wins at Dig Pink Invitational

(Continued)

With the momentum gathered from their 3-2 comeback victory over Hartwick earlier in the afternoon, the Cardinals had trouble in just one set in their 3-1 triumph over Montclair State.

Other than a 25-19 setback in the second frame, Plattsburgh State enjoyed a marked statistical advantage in nearly every offensive category. Another efficient attack plan helped the Cardinals hit .243 during the four-set bout while their defense stood strong, limiting the Red Hawks to a .157 attack percentage.

Also continuing their strong offensive performances from the first match were the trio of Cummings, Diehl and Schrantz. Cummings and Diehl tied for match-high honors in kills as each one floored 16. Schrantz added 14 terminations of her own as well as a pair of block assists.

Cummings completed a double-double with a team-high 19 digs and freshman Jackie Mariotti added 15 to Plattsburgh State’s match total of 62.

Diehl, Marchisotto and Jeanette Braun each chipped in a solo block as Plattsburgh State amassed seven blocks compared to eight by the Red Hawks.

Saturday will mark the final day of regular season matches for the Cardinals, as they are scheduled to take on Ithaca College at 1 p.m. before finishing their four-match slate at the Dig Pink Invitational by taking on host institution Oneonta State at 3 p.m.
