HARRISONBURG, Va. – The Gallaudet University men's volleyball team was swept Saturday at a tri-match hosted by Eastern Mennonite University in Yoder Arena. The Bison dropped their first match of the day 16-25, 14-25, 22-25 to Lancaster Bible College and lost to the host Royals by the score of 8-25, 10-25, 7-25. This marked the second time this season the Bison (0-4) have faced these two schools.
In the first match, freshman opposite hitter Isaac Flink (Vancouver, British Columbia) led the Bison with six kills on 19 attempts (.211 percentage) and passed out 13 assists and made three digs. Sophomore opposite hitter Manuel Rivero (Lima, Peru) recorded five kills, four digs and served up two service aces. Freshman libero James Wilson (Tucson, Ariz.) made a team-high six digs. Freshman outside hitter Andrew Biskupiak (Frederick, Md.) had three kills and five digs in the loss. The 22 points scored in the third set is a season best total for the Bison. Lancaster Bible's Mitch Demko had a game-high 11 kills in the win for the Chargers (2-3).
GU was dominated in the second match against Eastern Mennonite (5-2) as the Royals coasted in their win over the Bison. Flink was limited to four digs, two kills, two assists but recorded two service aces. Eastern Mennonite's Chris Moise and Jesse Reist had 12 and 11 kills, respectively.
