Volleyball Falls in Landmark Conference Clash with Catholic, 3-0

TOWSON, Md. - Visiting Catholic was able to rally to take three sets against host Goucher on Wednesday night inside the Decker SRC, winning the Landmark Conference volleyball match in straight sets (25-22, 25-18, 25-23).

With the loss, Goucher dropped to 10-14 overall and 0-4 in the Landmark Conference. Catholic improved to 18-11 and 3-1 in the Landmark with the victory.

In the defeat, Goucher surrendered leads in each of the first two sets to fall behind, 2-0. In the third and what turned out to be the final set, Goucher was able to cut the Catholic lead down to 24-23 late, but the Cardinals recorded the final point of the contest to take it in three.

Overall for the Gophers, sophomore Greta Coss (Bowie, Md.) once again led the Goucher attack, finishing with 12 kills, nine digs, and a career-best six solo blocks. The double-digit kill performance for Coss was her 11th of the year, and her sixth straight, overall.
