WINCHESTER, Va. – The Shenandoah University women's volleyball team earned its second home win of the season Thursday night with a thrilling, 3-2, non-league victory over the Catholic University of America.
CUA (13-5) won the first two sets of the match, winning 25-16 and 25-20, to put itself just one set from clinching.
Shenandoah (8-9) had other ideas.
SU squeaked out a pair of two-point wins, winning 25-23 in the third and 26-24 in the fourth, to force a decisive fifth set.
The Hornets then claimed the victory with a 15-10 triumph in that final set.
Cerretani also had four service aces.
Sophomore Regine Bumper was a dominant force on defense as the libero. She posted a match-high 35 digs.
Coach Jaime Terenzi takes her squad on the road this Saturday to Cresson, Pennsylvania for a non-league tri-match at Mount Aloysius. The Hornets will take on the host Mounties at 1 before finishing the day with a 3 p.m. match against Pitt-Greensburg.
