Bison storm past Wolfpack in straight set win

AURORA, N.Y. - A day after losing a third set that went to the 35th point the Gallaudet University women's volleyball team was on the winning side of a long third set. The Bison defeated North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) rival Keuka College, 3-0, here Friday evening at the Farenthold Athletic Wing on the campus of Wells College. Gallaudet won the straight set match, 25-14, 25-16, 34-32. 

Gallaudet (10-4, 4-0 NEAC) remains perfect in conference play as it enters a pivotal NEAC Crossover Weekend hosted by Wells. The Bison are one of three NEAC teams still undefeated in conference play.
