Volleyball Splits on Opening Day of Salisbury Tournament

SALISBURY, MD - The Frostburg State women’s volleyball team split its two matches on day one of the Salisbury Tournament Friday evening.

The Bobcats (11-4) lost their opening match 3-1 to No. 3 Juniata. Frostburg State, which dropped a 3-0 contest to the Eagles in the season-opener for both teams September 3, looked to pull off the upset behind a 30-28 victory in game one. It was the first time the Bobcats won a game against the perennial national powerhouse.

Juniata evened the match with a 30-17 win in game two. In game three, the Bobcats made a valiant effort but fell short 30-25. Juniata closed the match with a 30-18 victory in game four.

Sophomore Kelly May (Flintstone, Md./Fort Hill) led the Bobcats with 10 kills, while seniors Lauren Petrick (Denton, Md./North Caroline) and Jodi Carpenter (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore) each had seven.

Senior Carrie Ness (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key) recorded 23 assists while senior Sam Seyfferth (Annapolis, Md./Broadneck) added 29 digs.

In their second match of the evening, the Bobcats defeated in-state rival Salisbury, 3-2. FSU posted 30-27 and 30-21 victories in the first two games before the Sea Gulls rallied with 30-26 and 30-25 wins. The Bobcats then captured the decisive fifth game with an exciting 17-15 victory.

Carpenter smashed 17 kills, while May recorded 15. Ness once again led the Bobcats with 30 assists while sophomore Amanda Hernandez (Crofton, Md./Arundel) had 25. Seyfferth added a season-high 32 digs on defense.

The Bobcats return to action tomorrow when they play Richard Stockton at noon and Johns Hopkins at 2:00 pm.
