Last week, Siena edged the Princeton women's volleyball team by two points in the fifth set. Though head coach Sabrina King was even happier with the team's performance Saturday, the result was the same; Siena topped Princeton 15-13 in the fifth set to conclude the Colgate Invitational.
The Tigers had their fair share of strong performances, include another one from All-Ivy outside hitter Lydia Rudnick. The senior recorded 26 kills and 15 digs in the 25-20, 25-19, 22-25, 17-25, 15-13 loss. Princeton concludes its second weekend of the season with a 2-3 record (Friday's victory over Montreal won't count as an NCAA victory), though it was a few points from being 4-1.
Princeton had some spectacular defensive efforts, including a 29-dig performance from freshman libero Sarah Daschbach. Sophomore middle Nicole Kincade had 10 blocks to go along with her seven kills, while freshman Kendall Peterkin had 18 digs with her 11 kills.
Sophomore setter Ginny Willis had 44 assists and 14 digs, while junior outside Sydney Brombal added 12 digs. King was able to use most of her bench throughout the match.
Princeton will head to Seton Hall Wednesday night, and then will compete at the George Washington Invitational next weekend.
