Connecticut College Snaps Volleyball's Home-Court Win Streak

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Connecticut College women's volleyball team dealt Bowdoin its first home loss since 2007 in a 3-0 victory at Morrell Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon.

The 25-15, 25-14, 25-22 decision snaps Bowdoin's 40-game home-court winning streak that was the longest in Division III volleyball and improves the Camels to 11-2 (3-2 NESCAC). Bowdoin (12-2, 3-1 NESCAC) also falls in a conference match for the first time since 2010, snapping a 13-match league winning streak.

Rachel Schroff led the way for the Camels, notching 12 kills , seven assists and five digs in the victory. Katie Ketcham dealt 31 assists herself and earned 16 digs while Cailyn Straubel had 11 kills and 14 digs in the win.

Melissa Haskell had six kills and 10 digs while Luisa LaSalle had 15 assists and 17 digs. Christy Jewett and Hillary Cederna had four kills each in the loss.

Bowdoin will look to rebound next Friday when they return to action with a conference match at Colby at 8:00 p.m. Connecticut College returns to the court Wednesday at Clark for a 7:00 p.m. match.
