  • In the first matchup against Bucknell, Holy Cross took the Bison to five sets, but lost, 3-2. The team notched 77 kills, which is the season-high for the Crusaders.

She is also averaging 5.73 digs per set, and if that stands after the final two matchces, she will break the record for single-season digs per set average.
