Presidents Raise Record To 6-1 For Best Mark Since 2005
PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- Junior middle hitter Lindsey Bennett (Pittsburgh, Pa./Brentwood) posted a team-high 10 kills to help the Washington & Jefferson College volleyball squad improve to 6-1 after defeating Carlow 3-1 (25-15, 25-22, 22-25, 25-22) Tuesday night.

Carlow lost for the second time to the Presidents this season and saw its record fall to 7-10.
Freshman outside hitter Taylor Freeman (Cresson, Pa./Penn Cambria) added nine kills, while classmate Michealia Skleres (Andover, Ohio/Pymatuning Valley) dished out 24 assists. Another freshman, Allie Means (Connellsville, Pa./Connellsville), recorded 17 digs and junior defensive specialist Sarah Stedina (Darlington, Pa./Blackhawk) picked up three service aces.
