Sinclair Volleyball drops Miami-Hamilton in 3 sets
Dayton, OH – The Sinclair (17-8/8-3 OCCAC) Volleyball only needed 65 minutes to knock off Miami University-Hamilton (5-5/5-2 ORCC) 3-0 this afternoon.
Sinclair had no let down coming off a critical OCCAC victory last night and looked to be finding a groove for post-season play. Not sure the Harriers of MUH were ready for the Sinclair fire power as the Pride scored early and often for an opening set victory 25-11.
The second set the visitors from Hamilton held their only lead of the match in the second set 11-9. In a short and quick match, that would be the only success the Harriers would have against Sinclair and from that point the Pride was in total control pulling out a 25-16 set two win.
The third set was just a formality as Sinclair finished off the visitors from the Ohio Regional College Conference (ORCC) 25-14 and pushed their non-conference winning streak to 8 matches.
Miami-Hamilton (5-5/5-2) 11 16 14
Sinclair (17-8/8-3) 25 25 25
Congratulations to Sophomore Caroline Smith (SO/Tecumseh H.S. – New Carlisle, OH) as she moves into 2nd place on the Sinclair all-time Assists leader board, she passes Sarah Wright who finished her career with 1,426 assists.
