Lady Hornets Volleyball Gained Momentum with a Home Winning Streak

With the MEAC Volleyball Tournament coming up on November 17th, the Delaware State Lady Hornets volleyball team wanted to build momentum by trying to win the final four home games of the season.

Guess what, mission accomplished because defeated four MEAC teams in a span of a week.

Lets start with last weekend with November 5 and November 7 when the lady hornets sweep both Morgan State and Coppin State 3-0. Both of those games were season sweep.

Then on Veterans Day, Lady Hornets Hornet had a great battle with Howard University in 3-1 victory thanks to Jessica Croucher's 12 kills.

Last but not least in their home finale on November 12, the Lady Hornets had to win the final two series to beat North Carolina Central 3-2.

Playing in her final game as a DSU Hornet, senior Sarah Wheatcort had her very first career triple double with 12 kills, 17 assists, and 14 digs.

During the lady hornets four game winning streak, DSU has owned opponents in attack percentage 27% to .08%.

Now that the regular season is over the lady hornets will begin the MEAC Tournament as the number two seed when they take on Norfolk State Friday in the quarterfinals. Good luck to the Lady Hornets volleyball team in the MEAC Tournament.
