The Pioneers served up their weekend quartet of games on Friday, Sept. 11, against Salem International College and Shepherd University. The Green Machine cruised to victories in both matches as they won 3-0 and 3-1 respectively. Sophomore outside-hitter Danielle Valenza recorded six kills and seven digs in the first match to lead the way while senior right-side hitter Monica Amador amassed eight kills and 11 digs in the next match.
The team returned to the court the next day and took a pair of losses at the hands of Lock Haven University and Wayne State University. The Pioneers will look to bounce back in their next match when they host Franklin Pierce University on Saturday, Sept. 19, at 1 p.m.
