ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. – The St. Mary’s College of Maryland volleyball team (4-12,0-2) hosted the York College Spartans (12-9, 1-1) for a Capital Athletic Conference matchup Wednesday night (Oct. 2). The Seahawks fell to the Spartans in three sets.

St. Mary’s College – 0, York College – 3

How It Happened

  • The Seahawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead but dropped the next ten points and trailed the Spartans 12-2. York stretched that score into a 22-6 lead but from there St. Mary’s College won ten of the next 12 points to bring the score to 24-16. Unfortunately, the early lead surrendered to the Spartans would prove too much to overcome as they dropped the set 25-16.  
  • York got off to another hot start in the second set as they came out to a 12-4 lead. However, the Seahawks would once again battle back to bring the score to an even 21-21. York led 23-22 and that would be the closest St. Mary’s College would get as they dropped the second set 25-22.   
  • The third set started in a 6-6 tie until St. Mary’s College went on a three-point run to make it 9-6 and later stretched that into a 12-8 lead. The Seahawks eventually surrendered the lead and trailed 16-15 later in the set. Next, York scored four straight points and would later go on to take the set and secure the match with a score of 25-21.
