CHESTERTOWN, Md. – Shenandoah University split its two non-league volleyball matches Saturday to remain .500 on the season.

In the opening match, host Washington College kept its volleyball record perfect on the season by rallying for a 3-2 victory.

Shenandoah (4-4) found itself just one point from the win with a 14-11 lead in the decisive fifth set only to see the Shorewomen (6-0) score five straight points and steal the victory with a 17-15 triumph.

SU had forced the fifth set after winning 25-22 in the fourth. The Hornets opened the match by winning by that same score in the first before WC won 28-26 and 25-19 in the second and third sets, respectively, to take the 2-1 lead.

In the fifth, a Kaitlyn Kelley kill gave the Hornets that 14-11 lead. Unfortunately for SU, three straight Shorewomen points knotted the contest up at 14-all.

Shenandoah coach Jaime Terenzi called timeout in an effort to change the momentum, but Washington had one more point in itself before losing the serve on an attack error.

With the set tied at 15-15, WC again took the lead on a kill before winning the set and the match thanks to a Hornets attack error.

Caylin Harris led Terenzi's club with 12 kills while Kelley added 11 and Torie Gettier eight.

Megan Hillyard and Emily Veach posted 18 and 12 assists, respectively, with Hillyard registering a double-double thanks to 12 digs.

Nicole Shannon had a team-high 23 digs with Kelley adding 15.

Emily Cheatwood had six block assists.

In the College of Notre Dame match, Shenandoah won the opening set at 16, and after the Gators (4-1) were 25-23 winners in the second, won sets three and four at 20 and 23, respectively, to close out the contest.

Harris had 13 kills with Cheatwood and Michelle DiVito adding 10 each and Kelley nine to lead the offense.

Hillyard had 33 of the squad's 49 assists with Veach adding 13.

Defensively, Shannon was again the story with 27 digs. Kelley backed her up with 13.

Shenandoah opens ODAC play at Randolph-Macon on Wednesday at 7:30.
