INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - After an impressive 3-1 win over Mount Vernon on Friday, the Forester volleyball team came up short but turned in a quality performance against #25 Marian University Saturday afternoon in a 3-0 decision (-22, -20, -25) that favored the Knights at the MU Physical Education Center.

With this loss, HU drops to 13-19 overall, 7-10 in league play. With just Bethel left on their regular season schedule, Coach Shondell’s crew is sitting sixth in the CL standings.

Danielle Gurwell and Breanna Metz shared team-high kill honors with eight each. Josie Beaver added six kills to go along two solo blocks.

Jenna Tacosik ran HU’s offense to finish with a match-best 27 assists. Kate Cobb took charge of the backline with a match-high 21 digs. Ariene Butler posted 15 digs while Emily Hubby and Mikayla Carpenter tallied 11 and ten respectively.
