YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO– The Robert Morris volleyball team (7-23, 4-15 Horizon) traveled to Youngstown State (9-20, 4-14 Horizon) to take on the Penguins for the Colonials’ final match of the season. The Colonials could not spoil the senior night for the Penguins as they would lose in straight sets by a score of three sets to none.

The Colonials were simply overmatched in this contest tonight as the Penguins’ attack nailed 45 kills. The attack of Youngstown State had the Colonials block uncomfortable all night as the Penguins sent balls over with ease.

The Colonials’ attack could not get going on the other side of the ball, as they could only land 29 kills. The Colonials could not get anything going tonight as they seemed a step behind the Penguins. Hillarie Adams led the Colonials with e, eight kills, and Esposito had five.

However, there were some positives to take away as the Colonials could land six total aces tonight, as Ally Christman had half of them with three. Allena Carmody had two aces and Esposito had one.

That puts the fourth season in the books for the Colonials as they finish the season with a record of 7-23 and a Horizon League record of 4-15. The Colonials will lose seniors Rosina Esposito, Abby Ryan, Allena Carmody, and Emma Brown. While it will be tough shoes to fill for the Colonials, the team must look forward to next season.

Also, the season wrapping up marks the end of Head Coach Danny Doherty’s second season as head coach. It will be interesting to see what recruits and transfers he can bring into the program for next season.
