CALDWELL, N.J. – For the second straight match, the University of the Sciences women's volleyball team made a third-set push, but the Devils would fall to Caldwell in a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) match on Saturday afternoon.
Notably, Simran Sangu set a new career-high for a three set match with seven kills on .400 hitting to lead the USciences offensive attack.
After falling 9-25 and 11-25 in the first two sets, University of the Sciences overcame an early four-point deficit to take a 14-13 lead when a Caldwell error put a stamp on a 6-1 Devils run. Sarah Miller had two kills in the stretch, with Sangu and Brooke Witmer adding one each.
This forced Caldwell (13-4, 8-1 CACC) to call a timeout, and the Cougars would respond with four straight points to reestablish a three-point advantage. USciences would pull within one point twice, including at 17-18, before Caldwell closed out the match with seven of the final eight points.
Dakota Raymond fell one dig shy of double figures with nine, while Miller was right behind Sangu with six kills.
University of the Sciences (3-9, 2-7) returns home to Bobby Morgan Arena on Wednesday, Oct. 11 to host Goldey-Beacom at 7 p.m.
