SVC remains perfect

BENNINGTON — The Southern Vermont College women's volleyball team remained undefeated as the squad took to a 3-0 non-conference win over SUNY Delhi Wednesday night at the Mountaineer Athletic Center.

SVC had to grind out a 25-23 win in the opening set before needing to come back from a late deficit in the second to win it 25-22.

The Mountaineers then staked a large upper hand in the onset of the third game, and they carried that advantage through the frame to take it 25-20 and sweep the night.

Mountaineers senior captain Liv Sowles had her second double-double of the year with a match-high 18 kills and 12 digs, while classmate Heidy Benitez notched a night-best 19 digs on the defensive end.

Freshman Alyssa Kuchis had her best match of the season with 16 digs and three kills, while sophomore Gabby Rushia racked up six block assists in the win. Junior setter Sarah Baty assisted on 22 of the 32 SVC kills.

Southern Vermont improves to 7-0 on the year while the Broncos fall to 5-2. The Mountaineers will be well-tested in their next contest as they host a solid Trinity College crew that brings a four-match winning streak to Bennington on Friday for a 7 p.m. start.
