Volleyball Hosts Holy Cross for Dig Pink Match

Leopards return home after five-straight away from Kirby for Breast Cancer Awareness match

- Friday's contest is Lafayette's annual Dig Pink Match in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor Janelle Hail. The mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.

- Despite dropping the contest, Lafayette played one of its most efficient matches on Saturday, hitting .296 as a team which was a season high for the Leopards.

- Freshman Kelly Austin topped her previous career-best of three blocks at Bucknell when she had four denials on Tuesday in the loss at Navy. 

- Freshman Grace Tulevech ranks fifth in the Patriot League in kills per set and first among freshmen with a 3.32 average while junior setter Julia Howard's 437 assists rank her fourth. 

- Junior Sonia Musso has moved into sixth in the Patriot League in aces per set with 0.29 while Tulevech's five aces against Manhattan are the second most in a single match in the League this season.
