Dearborn, MI - The volleyball team dropped their third consecutive match Saturday falling in three sets to the visiting Davenport University Panthers. Michigan-Dearborn played well, especially defensively, with Taylor Bejma (SO/Garden City) and Shayla Smalls (SO/Canton, MI) each having double digit digs with 11 and 10 respectively. As good as the Wolverines defense was, Davenport's offense proved to be too much. Davenport's Krissy Dill led all players with 14 kills while hitting .375. As a team, the Panthers hit .322 and also played well defensively at the net with 13 blocks including 5 team blocks. Davenport won 25-16, 25-22, and 25-10.
Michigan-Dearborn was led offensively by Colby DeMare (SR/Dearborn MI) who had 9 kills while Smalls and Briann Alspaugh (JR/St. Louis MI) each had 5 kills. Daniella Barile (FR/Plymouth MI) had 20 assists in the loss. The volleyball team will look to get back on track on Tuesday when they travel to Grand Rapids, to take on Grace Bible College at 6:30pm.
