DELHI, N.Y. (October 14, 2019) – A late rally in set one and a marathon second set did not fall in the SUNY Delhi women's volleyball team's favor on Monday, which could have otherwise changed the course of an eventual three-set defeat to SUNY Poly. The Broncos moved to 8-7 on the season.
With the guest Wildcats up in set one, 24-20, Delhi challenged with three straight points, only for Poly to win on the next point off a set error. Facing the same deficit in set two, The Broncos knotted things up at 24-24 following four straight points. Both sides exchanged set points a total of six times until the Wildcats finally got two consecutive points to claim a 31-29 win. The Wildcats carried that momentum to a 25-17 win in game three.
Freshman Chloe Elsenbeck led the team with seven kills and a career-high service aces, while totaling 11 digs. Lexi Taylor, Taylor Tsatsis, and Witchney Clersainville each finished with four kills. Clersainville added two total blocks with one solo, while Taylor charted ten digs. Gabriela Kralik had 14 digs, with libero Shelby Nolan digging 11.
