Boston, MA  - Coming off Saturday’s loss to the Northeastern University Huskies, Elon University’s volleyball team fell again to the Huskies in straight sets on Oct. 24. 

The Huskies, who had home-court advantage in Boston, won the first two sets by a score of 25-21, creating a lead early on that Elon could not come back from. Northeastern finished off the match by taking the third set 25-18. 

The Huskies outperformed the Phoenix in several key categories, leading the match with 47 kills, 7 blocks and a 56.8 scoring percentage, compared to Elon’s 34, 6 and 45.9 respectively. 

Senior outside hitter Kellyn Trowse led the Phoenix offense with 10 kills, but also added 10 digs to notch her first double-double of the season. Junior libero Jordan Gower posted a team-high 15 digs.  

Despite the loss, the Phoenix have more wins than any team in Colonial Athletic Association with eight — the most in a season since the program joined the conference in 2014. This loss puts the Huskies further ahead in the all-time series at 11-5. 

Elon’s volleyball team is scheduled to face William & Mary next Saturday and Sunday in Williamsburg, Virginia.
